(web version: 4.7Mb)

an Interactive Poem


As the movie downloads, you can click on the image window with the mouse and drag to reveal different lines of the poem. More lines and phrases will become accessible as the poem downloads further. When the movie has fully downloaded, some of these phrases will display animations, some will not. You should also hear the soundtrack playing, although you may wish to pause it until the vision is completely downloaded.

The poem is derived from phrases from the apocryphal publication: "The American Book of Answers" and was the winner of the WA Film and Video Festival 1997 Award for Interactive Multimedia

The original version of this piece was designed to be played at high-quality full-screen resolution and/or via video projection, and is 130Mb with the full soundtrack.
