One fresh trend that's forming in net art is the website dedicated to reinterpreting a film. An example: "The Jetty," by Hidekazu Minami, a New York-based visual artist and interactive designer. Based on "La Jette," by Chris Marker, Minami's site articulates the chronological events experienced by the characters in Marker's film. Some of the events are related at the same time, so multiple characters' points of view are seen at once, offering site visitors a poetic synopsis of the film. "The Jetty" has most recently been exhibited at the Museum of Image and Sound in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
