metaphor


Conceptual metaphor is to regard the gang-way as a keyboard and the coated glass-surface left and right as monitors - the one keyboard, in fact, being played by several players.

Therefore each player can experience his or her input in correlative feedback with the input of all co-players (...which, in case the bridge is looked at from a distance, could be read as the dance of the signifiers...)
