Is one's future a predetermined narrative? Juliet Martin's "Instant Future" is a website that suggests that it might be -- at least for the protagonist of the tale that unfurls on the site. Visitors encounter a woman who has a history of sexual and emotion abuse, which is conveyed by animated doodles accompanied by what appear to be written confessions. As her story is revealed, the character becomes ever more real by sharing her disbelief at exposing herself emotionally online. "Instant Future" is a poignant piece that also forces us to question the nature of our own life narratives.
