The ‘direct manipulation video’ series consists of three experimentations I did in early 2008 with giving the user the ability to manipulate time and space using their mouse within the browser. The images are large, so please be patient as they load.
The first experimentation, Unicycle, allows you to manipulate time using the left/right movement of the mouse.
The second experimentation, Silo, allows you to manipulate space. The close your mouse is to the middle of the browser window, the closer you are the the middle of the image.
The third experimentation, Climb, allows you to manipulate space and time with one gesture.
Up is up, down is down.
I’m interested in taking this process further, if you’re interested in commisioning a direct manipulation video piece for your website/brand, shoot me an email at email@example.com.
