    This was part of this series of chi.wanted posts.

      Did you have a backstory in mind, or was it just random?

        I tried to paint a loose picture, hoping people would speculate and turn it into something strange. At the time, there were many in the chi.* hierarchy who were quick to denounce things as evil, perverse and such, but nobody bit. Sometimes these things just don't pan. It seemed a beautiful combination of elements to me, but perhaps it was too loose or too unbelievable.
