Intro Grey Vaisius and I wrote a 130 page book about Internet culture. Interactive features of the book included: Gate folds, French folds, layers of acetate, and mirror paper. The books is an exploration of medium and message.
The cover The cover spans the front and back, traversing the spine of the book.
The back cover.
Acetate Metaphorical representation of the "body" using a layer of acetate over Michelangelo’s David. Common elements found in the body of a web page map to the human body.
Lift the acetate to see the body innocently – as you saw it before gaining consciousness.
More language and consciousness experiments using acetate.
Mirror paper The mirror screen. The screen is a reflection of the self.
Explorations around why we are captivated by the screen, the Internet, and conciousness.
French folds Open the French fold to find hidden meaning. The Internet is a grand expression of life.
Gate folds Language influeces you to interact with the page. The full meaning is found in the interaction.
