Artist Statement:


    Navigator is a Flash-based CD-ROM with circuitous navigation of environments, both real and representational, as its theme.

    At the end of each figurative, abstract, or photographic animation sequence, users must make choices without knowing where they are about to be led. The Flash animations contain abstract and figurative imagery combined with digital photography. Each animation depicts a navigation of an environment. The imagery is based on children’s drawings and digital photographs that have been redrawn and animated by the artist. Users navigate with a series of buttons that lead to randomly called sequences. At the end of each animation, the buttons oscillate and need to be discovered.

    The actions in Navigator parallel the random nature of real-life decision making.
