Medijate! Interactive Flash Website

MEDIJATE

…From the mind of Larry Carlson.

I don’t even know if I can explain this site – it’s not for the faint of heart! In all seriousness, if you’re prone to seizures, please avoid it. For the rest of you, step into an unforgettable and artistic digital world…

From the entry page, use your mouse to hover over the word Medijate – a sound clip plays, repeating the word. Hover over the tree and it interactively changes shape…

Enter into a world of enlightening and disturbing images – it’ll remind you of that scary boat ride in Willy Wonka. Here’s the landing page…

…and a surreal image…

…an image when you click the word “POP” (and it flashes)…

Just go and click on everything in this dreamy, psychedelic portal!!!

“This 16th Century Book Can Be Read Six Different Ways”

I don’t see a WordPress shareable link, so I’ll post an excerpt from Colossal:

“…Printed in the late 16th century this small book from the National Library of Sweden is an example of sixfold dos-à-dos binding, where six books are conjoined into a single publication but can be read individually with the help of six perfectly placed clasps. This particular book was printed in Germany and like almost all books at the time is a religious devotional text.”

Special thanks to Erik Kwakkel for the original story.
