    Description: pictures of everyday surroundings
    Comments: "Photography has always been attractive to me but I am really starting from scratch as I hadn't touched anything else than a small compact digital camera since 1982..." Living in Paris, Elaine has been out to capture the everyday in pictures since launching the photoblog at the beginning of the year. Look – another spiral to add to the collection, not to mention great shots of a one-man band and a beautiful blur...;~))

    Description: photoblog of George Hreniuc, based in Bucharest, Romania
    Comments: A certain spiral staircase urged me to explore George's photoblog, where I found another view of the same thing (I think). I also found beauty, decay, and other amazing things there. Great photography from Romania (and a few other places)...

    Description: a venue for collaborative works by contemporary short fiction writers, graphic designers and visual artists (Flash)
    Comments: An interesting collaborative space with almost a dozen content contributors so far, today's pick is "a synthesis of text and image... built as an alternative for the traditional presentation systems."  I read a number of interesting pieces and have to say that the content is thought provoking – well-written texts accompanyed by excellent visuals.  As a user, though, I found the site to be somewhat challenging – I think that's what the site's creator had in mind, calling it "a device to question the conventional methods of perception."  In my mind, some of the pieces raise questions aside from the meanings of their textual content.  Does the user want to read one line at a time and wait 5 or more seconds for the next line to appear?  How many text effects and transitions can the user bear in one sitting?  Are long lines of text in a spiral formation meant to be read?  Are you making me click a little too much?  Don't get me wrong – these are just my observations and questions based on what I'm used to  I guess that's the point.  The "zone to examine the cognitive chaos" has done it's job well...
     
  • kilfish 2/8/02 
    Description: pictures, flash movies and splash pages in dark (Flash)
    Comments: Somewhere in Budapest, an artist/designer named "kilfish" is busy capturing the images and voices within.  Capturing them is one thing, but expressing them through one's art is quite another.  Kilfish has it down.  "Every year pricks a sore on my skin... each month pulls me further down the spiral."  Entering the site is a trip into darkness that requires "patience, tolerance, [and a] sense of humour."  In one image, a thin, sick-looking man appears to be trapped within what looks like a syringe – "no alarms and no surprises."  In another, Kilfish lies dead, "waiting for the judgement" with a convienient mailto link for the Lord to use.  My favorite has to be the café setting with the plastic-looking people that says "I wish I had been born on another planet."  For every thousand Flash sites you come across, only one will be like today's pick – extraordinary interface and content within an emotional environment effectively constructed and conveyed by one artist.  Magnificent!
