An Interactive Film
February 22, 2010 3:39 PM   Subscribe

Each day, we are surrounded by seemingly insignificant objects, taking them from one place to the other, or leaving them on a table for weeks, without paying any attention to them. We ignore or forget them, using things only when we need to, making sure they don’t interfere or inhabit our space. But what if they were not so stable and subservient? What if they could swivel, bounce or even fly? And what if they did so all at the same time? This experiment is about re-discovering our daily surroundings. Each object is assigned to a letter on the keyboard, and can be activated or deactivated at any time.

We want to imagine a place where objects could live and move, harmoniously, and of their own accord. Without interfering with each other these objects would bounce, roll, turn and cross each other’s paths. Play now.

Hmmm. Can't seem to get it to work in either Firefox or IE (both the 32 or 64 bit versions). I'm just supposed to click on the picture, right?

Scratch that... you just start typing on the keyboard (I was trying to click on the picture to get a keyboard to appear on the browser). This is cool! :)

What is that thing in the bottom right corner - "W". I think it says "Husky" on the side of it. I don't know what that is.

As an American, I need to know in order to satisfy my curiosity and determine whether or not it is something I can live without.
