Chris Milk’s “Rome – 3 Dreams in Black”: collaborative poesis/*
Built with WebGL and HTML 5, this interactive animation allows users to create their own 3D objects and landscapes – which the system refers to as “dreams” – to add to the world of the animation. The player/viewer/modeler can also explore different poetic realms in the wake of exploding pixelated flowering animals. Part virtual painting, part modeling software, part music video, and part hallucinatory Second Life experience, Rome, much like Mindcraft, problematizes interactivity, fusing work, play, and poetry in a single experience.
