i've been writing a graphic synthesizer/langu(im)age processor called dbCinema and, recently, dbCinemizing with some images of Olga, the Vancouver fashion model and book maker–as in artists' books and regular books. i've read one of her books called Soros. the writing is by Kedrick James. Olga's visuals are Russian Constructivistic. It's a real page turner! Soros was hanged before his first meeting with Soros on January 6 1990. Soros will give no choice but to award them enough divergence to go wrong. By June of 1993 Soros was against this time. Of course it helps if you know a little of the Soros story.
the dbCinema series on Olga is at http://vispo.com/dbcinema/olga
i think these are rather intense.
Many thanks to Olga for permission to display these on vispo.com. And to Miles de Courcy, the photographer, and Katherine Soucie, the dress designer.
In Internet Explorer and Opera the series stops around image 470 (of 581 images) on my system. Works fine in Safari and Firefox, however. Opera will display all images if you increase the disk cache size in Preferences. But I can't get Internet Explorer to display all the images, on my system. So I recommend you don't use that browser. Too bad. Used to be a good browser. But it's now the Bush administration of browsers: mad with security issues. Overkill. No fun. Forces of dullness. If yer on a PC, the F11 key toggles yer browser fullscreen and back. All the images are 1280 x 1024 pixels, so they probly take up all yer real estate.
The first pass through the images is relatively slow as it downloads the big images one by one. But that is well-suited to a first viewing: each of the images is meant as something viewable as a still. When all of them have downloaded, it speeds up to 12.5 frames per second (if yer puter is up to the job) and so you see it in a different light, as a high-res, 47 second video. and it is quite different this way.
the controls at top left let you pause it on and off and advance by one image or go back one image. you can also change the delay between images.
it is meant to be experienced this way, rather than simply as a video that plays with no interactivity.
