"I’ve been working for a long time on this series of linked projects that deals with a group of properties, 49 properties or characteristics. Each of the properties or characteristics represents a function of the universe. 'Proposition Player' was a gathering of a large group of those characteristics, fusing them into one project...'Proposition Player' is all about gambling and quantum mechanics, the elements of chance and risk, and how those things build into an entire continuum of meaning."
