    There's nothing to 'get', it's just a bit of fun.

    That's really cool/clever, it'd mess with your head nicely if you were drunk! :D

    That was friggin great....I think it was more than one person - different styles, but wow...

    I'd like to try something like that in 3D, could be very cool....

    And I love the seemlessness of it :D

    Quite simple actually - at least it seems so.

    Here's my guess:

    Each artist is in charge of one or more pics....all have a middle section blanked out. Using flash, it loads all the images and possibly masks to make the transition seamless.

    One thing, it might be a cumulative effort in the sense that the first guy does his, passes it along to the next guy and he makes the seamless transition, etc.

    Pretty damn cool....

    I think it could be easily replicated and if you'd like to give it a go, I'd love to try a 3D version....

    A 3D version would definitely blow my mind!

    That's the most innovative and artistic thing I've ever seen flash do.

    I've given this some thought and I think I've figured out how to code it in Action Script...so I'm going to go ahead and make a template using simply constructed 3D scenes and then add the new images in later.

    This could be very cool and one thing these guys missed out on was allowing for animation in the images...if done correctly its quite possible.

    This might take a week or longer, so I'll post something when I have it figured out.

    I hate to break this to you all but:

    That isn't flash,

    It's Shockwave, but not Shockwave flash. Shockwave is harder to use, but can do alot more. Like actual 3D with the right coding.

    Not being a web designer, I don't care what it is.
    But it remains quite impressive, nonetheless.

    so do you think all art is a waste of time, or just interactive media art?

    anyway, i thought it was very cool. Someone needs to make one with scenes from the Dark Tower series, that's what it reminded me of... just follow the beam... OK most of you don't know what the hell i'm talking about... heh...

    wow, a few more images than I expected, but damn cool.

    I think you can do it in Flash and I'm still going to try.

    I found it to be an enjoyable ride. Reminded me of being on an amusement park ride. A very clever job. I agree 3-d would really be nice.

    im not sure if your getting all defensive or not, but i cant understand why your asking me if i think all art is a waste of time.....in fact i think its a ridiculous statement... i said THIS was a waste of time.....

    i think its a waste of time making a painting out of horse manure and seamen and calling it art, that however doesnt mean that i think the mona lisa or the scream was a waste of time... get real :)

    Wow. I'd like to see a painting made out of seamen. I've already heard of one out of SEMEN, but not SEAMEN! WOW! Wonder if they volunteered or if W. made them do it.


    Okay...anyway

    You're entitled to your opinion, but this concept is really interesting! Maybe it wasn't executed as well as it could have been, but the idea opens itself up to many possibilities--the most obvious one including animation somehow.

    Exactly - that's what I was thinking. You could have elements that move in the scenes. It would be tricky, but if its coded well with the right scaling, it shouldn't be a problem....
