This iteration of The Devil’s Rope Journal was created by Randy Adams (aka runran, Can), Chris Joseph (aka babel, Can/UK) and Christine Wilks (aka crissxross, UK). It began as a series of imaginary DVD covers presented as digital images in R3//1X//0RX tongue-in-cheek commentaries on new media in general. In the spring of 2007 we decided to develop a presentation for the Interactive Futures 2007 (The New Screen) conference in Victoria. Certain images and animations, texts, audio, and snippets of code were chosen from the blog (see below). A private blog space was used to work together online, exchanging ideas, discussing theme and presentation. Finally, the material was drawn together during an intensive 2-day fleshmeet in runran’s small house by the sea in Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island.
The result of that collaboration is offered here as a download – an interactive Flash movie in a standalone player. There are two versions: one for PC and one for Mac – unzip the archive and double click on the appropriate player to launch – read the instructions and turn your speakers up.
