Why is this piece so amazing? It's not just the "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" style intersection of imagination and reality. Don't get me wrong; that combination gets me every time. It's what fascinates me so much about computing – the way that such abstract patterns become part of what we call real life, without any kind of physical grounding.
But it's more than that. It's the sense that the work, like so many great things, comes from a big question. Not a philosophical one, not some kind of discourse or analysis, not a commentary. Just a big "Holy shit! What if I....?!"
Talent + wide-eyed willingness to explore. Does it ever fail to produce good work?
