Amazone

Abstract:
Amazone, an initiatory journey of a woman artist from childhood to adulthood. This multimedia work created for the web in 1997 and slightly modified is composed of 22 pages using GIF animations, sounds (.au format), JavaScript, poetic texts and images. The concept of this work was to be as simple as possibie thereby making everything in it as relevant as possible. Almost each page consists of a poetic text guiding the viewer through the joumey, an image transforming itself (an animation or JavaScript mouseover) and sometimes a secret (a hidden sound, image or text). The background color is black in all pages except for the four pages where the colors become part of the story. The work uses its many different elements to convey a journey of initiation to the viewer in a interactive manner. The viewer has to follow the story and find the hidden elements that enrich the story just like dreams enrich our lives.
