When you have a moment:
These works can be seen in 20 minutes or less, but you may want to go over and over them. (My kanjis, like Children's Time and my flashworks like Carving in Possibilities. I'm Simply Saying, Peace Roses, and Tree Woman are at this level).
- Serge Bouchardon, Kevin Carpentier, Stéphanie Spenlé's Touch Me (2009) explores five ways of touching the screen and interacting with the words.
- Caren Beilin and Jennifer Smith's Animals Are Placebos. (2008) An intriguing little work that repeats the same prescriptions for taking animals for healing. (buttons as links, moving text)
- John Sparrow's Eye in the Making (2006) explores god, software, and technology in three video screens with expanding words.
- Edward Picot's The Stream (2005) tells amusing little vignettes that use the same images. A short history of everything is a linear piece that marries images and words.
- Thom Swiss, Motomichi Nakamura, Robot Friend, Fresh Icons (2004) Doors open and close while shadow figures talk obscurely of playing cards and magnets.
Factory: A great little flash commentary. Also, the Haiku Generator creates interesting haikus and tankas.
- Robert Kendall's Faith: a kinetic poem that shakes out its meaning (Flash). His Study in Shades is a lovely little poem where we see the father and daughter moving away from each other (HTML, connection system)
- Dan Waber's Strings is fun, where handwritten words morph on the screen.
- MISSING: William Gillespie's Omnifesto text curls around "just for the fun of it."
