-creates automatically a web page out of this verbalisation

- participant is constantly in realtime interaction with the voice (speech synthesis) of the system, which gives real time response of the participants movement, this response includes encouragement and advise for the participants movement in different phases of the interaction, (it plays with the impression of a computerised but "humanlike real and intelligent perception" )


-verbalisations created seem random-poetic or enigmas uttered by an oracle but there is no randomness: the verbalisation is directly in interrelationship with the movement

-central aspect is the "performance" of the participant since more than "normal" quotidian amount of movement is required
