This trilogy invents a new literary style of non-fiction quantum narrative to break down barriers between critic and reader through the protagonist’s mission to track (r)evolutionary art erasing boundaries between performance and audience. The initial penetration into the New York arts scene parallels a new job analyzing the exploding Applications Service Providers market for Internet.com. The literary leap strives to merge this opposition between technology and alchemical art creation. The quest is to create an aliveness quantum reality in which past/present/future are experienced simultaneously. This experiment with an authentic original 21st century literary art results in a trilogy of papers defining, and then overcoming, the critical application of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle to define a New Modernism around the globe.
