Pause

From Rhizome Artbase
2004
Description

Pause uses the new media approach to create four self-containing environments. Unlike most things on the net, these spaces demand passivity, while immersing you in video, sound, and design. Using abstraction, the artist creates spaces that are both familiar and foreign, dynamic and static. The navigation for a subsequent space does not appear until you observe each loop at least once.
The project attempts to utilize the collage-like nature of the internet space. The browser has always delivered sound, graphics and text in a linear fashion. Pause integrates the three into a cohesive piece - an art resulting from the new media form.
