Who has access to this piece?
How do you view it?
In a web browser. Navigated through keystrokes, mouse, or gestures on a trackpad. The viewing experience feels similar to a power point presentation, or perhaps more similar to the bouncy animated ’surprise!’ style of keynote. Oh, and there are some of those cool new video backgrounds. Like the water is actually rippling in the image below
Why do you think the author chose this medium?
To add dimensions to the sharing of a space. To try and achieve parody with the actual experience and memory of a place, that I am imagining the is driving the authors production of this piece. That is to say, I imagine the authors experience of ‘the most northern place,’ is not one the can be honestly portrayed by any single medium; text, image, video, etc. I think our relationships to space (and everything really) are made up of all the complex dynamics that exist within the naturally occurring world and our movement through it. And our ability to express or share the ideas, memories, or questions about these (and everything) are limited by the aggregate allowances of the tools that we have access to, and the constraints that make them up. By using the interactive canvas of possibility that is the modern web browser, and leveraging the ability of programming to collect and intersect various modes and mediums of expression, the author is working to create an experience of ‘the most northern place,’that is most true-most honest, and best representative of the convergence of experience, thought, feeling, and memory that make up our complex relationship to space (and everything).
