Altitude (1996)

Altitude (http://www.thomson-craighead.net/Altitude/) is the second online artwork made by Jon Thomson & Alison Craighead in 1996. In this work, a geographical scale becomes the interface through which a conversation about a UFO sighting can be heard amidst fragments of early web pages, broken links &c. This work also acts as a social document of how the web looked in its early years. In the original version of this work, shockwave movies were used to embed the audio files but these have been since replaced with mp3's and mp4's so you will need the quicktime plug-in or similar.
