Beatles Waterfall & Virtual Menagerie
With Allen and other friends, I enter a strange building at night in an industrial
area. The interior is one
room, with a high platform in the back facing a huge
screen on the front wall. (The layout now vaguely reminds me of the last level of
.) We climb to the top of the platform and meddle with some controls. A
begins to pour from the back wall off the platform, down to the floor and right
appear on the screen, surrounded by water. Then they appear standing next to us on the platform.
shows us how it's done by jumping into the rushing water and riding it all the way to the end. When he hits the front wall he is instantly
ed back to the rear wall right next to us. Everyone joins in with the ride. I hang around talking with
but only try the
ride a few times.
A scene that is narrated by an
ic voice with a
accent, while I am the acting character. It's night and I'm walking in a dark, silent house towards a particular room. The
describes the three objects contained therein: a
machine, and a "
". I approach this last one, a glass-sided box ten feet long and wide, it's roof just brushing the room's ceiling. On the sides are what look like video game controllers. I can make out what looks like a
street corner winter scene in the dark interior. As I pick up a controller and fiddle with the buttons and joystick, the narrator recalls a personal memory of his, the one on which this menagerie is based. As I watch, the inside of the box becomes the whole dream--I and the house are no longer--as the memory is relived on a snowy street corner. Like in a cartoon, all the people walking around are actually
animals. The narrator, now walking down the sidewalk, is a large yellow bird. The memory being relived is the day the bird took a walk and, wherever he went, he would get
ed looks from
s. I watch this happen a few times as, for example, a tiger spots the bird from across the street and is
, with a hand over his mouth, looking quite frightened. Neither the bird nor I ever figure out what the problem was. Eventually I am back in the room in front of the menagerie. Through the
sliding glass door
I can make out a small cement patio and the lawn just beyond it. Up in a starless sky, the moon is shining.
I like it!
