In the darkness of a planetarium a performer guides us on a journey through inner space, stitching together the thoughts of countless individuals using text culled from Internet comments. We think of comments as the Internet's id—unrestrained, anonymous, and let loose. Is this id a roiling sea of primal drives, or a thoroughly structured and colonized territory?
