- Taking seriously Andrew Stern’s aspiration that IDS become a premier art form for the 21st century, this paper re-examines agency, understood as the ability to freely control the plot, as a key concept in IDS aesthetics. Tracing the origins of this notion in IDS theory, this paper suggests that "true" agency is a myth, and that even restricted agency is too constrained to serve as a desirable goal for IDS-as-art.
