Becketts Bounce A great bit of Flash art for those with literary tastes (words but no pictures) and a soft spot for Sam Beckett.

Odd little thing that is... and a little herky-jerky. Anywhere we can get the story without all of the flash?

You have to wait a migraine-inducing while for the memory of seeing Beckett in Paris, which is only slightly charming and so quite a disappointment after the visual assault. The literary style is sub-Hammettesque but I suppose its heart is in the right place. Perhaps the awards have gone to Heavy Industry's (or whatever it's called) head?

I can't go on. I must go on. Fuck it: I won't go on.

I like her other stuff better. It's less regular and faster, and ironically doesn't hurt my eyes. That one sure did - I closed the window after about 30 seconds.

That is seriously hard to watch. Groovy, though ...

This is the work of Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries who is a (or a group of) South Korean artist(s). I didn't watch the linked flash movie, but I really like this one. For a little more insight check out this interview.

Doh, reading I just noticed the "her" in GriffX's comment that reminded me of where I first found out about this, and yess it's collaboration between Chang Young-hae and Marc Voge. I also remember reading something by her that explained a lot mor about the peices, but I can't remember it now.

It's amazing how these weird 2 year old links stick in your head.

it's a shame the credits on that site cause me seizures; they use some pretty cool music some of which i don't recognize.

I could not get through it...but I am guessing it is not a reference to this Sam Beckett... :>
