of the last 15 years - the Halabja massacre of 1988, the beating-up of
Rodney King in 1992, and the public execution of a woman in
Taliban-Afghanistan in 2001. The images from these three incidents are put
under the light of historical context, thus juxtaposing our present with our
past. At the same time the voices taken from various documentaries
intermingle with them, offering personal perspectives on those social
conditions. By so doing, Last Meal Requested plays with two poles on two
different levels - the past/ the present, the society/ the individual.

    well, does everything have to be functional, with one possible reason behind
    every little thing possible ???????
    can it be that the orange line symbolizes the linearity of our concept on
    time? or maybe it's there because it looks nice and i felt like that went
    well with the graphic composition? what do you reckon?
    and, i am sorry, what was the 6 rules for internet art again?

    I notice you are quick to promote yourself and your agenda with a site depicting violence and victims of violence. Ethics is a slippery slope up your way.

    Nothing "has to" be anything. However, there is a rather cliche [in my
    opinion] tendency to always have these "scan lines" in almost every flash
    piece. It seems to be part of the agreement about what flash art is
    "supposed to" look like, and it's just kind of sad that these lines that
    follow the mouse are almost always present- and rather gratuitous.

    Every artist has a choice in what elements they use in thier compositions. I
    just feel that perhaps, looking at the bulk of flash pieces these days,
    artists would choose to create something else within the flash framework
    instead of relying on any type of shared vocabulary. It's very limiting to
    have moving lines all the time. I see it on museum sites, gallery sites, non
    profit sites, and corporate sites: If you have flash, you must have the
    moving lines, and if you don't have the moving lines, then the grid-like
    background has got you.

    It is not important, to be sure- I am only talking about art on the web,
    after all- no reason to take it seriously.
