2008 Interactive Video Travelogue {Documented in 2021}

In 2008 I attended ISEA in Singapore. After catching bronchitis in the air-conditioning, I went wandering around Malaysia.

Then built an interactive repository for my travel footage: idiosyncratic debris from an indolent eye.

Keep in mind, 2005 was the birth of youtube, single videos were still somewhat newish.

Spore presented 16 videos in a single interactive webpage that preloaded: the grey lines on the opening page were loading bars. Load time was approximately 45 secs. After that all videos were inside the browser, scrubbable and exchangable. Auto-play enacted a chain through the sequence.
