I love this stuff – I think Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries is actually two people – Young-Hae Chang and Mark Voge, although I’m not sure if this is true of all the pieces or just some of them.
Hey, I’d be happy to know that all of this amazing stuff isn’t coming from one person.
Holy man alive. This stuff is AWESOME. MMM. Whoa. Yes!
am i the only one who had an epileptic seizure while attempting to watch that?
So does this mean you didn’t like it?
i can’t say i liked nor disliked it because i wasn’t able to watch it. i watched it for a few seconds, then had to minimize the window, then after a few seconds of restabilizing my head i opened the window again, then had to minimize it, and did that about 10 times until i started to feel sick and dizzy. i guess that’s just me though. the older i get the worse reaction i have to strobes and i forget that other people aren’t affected cognitively by it.
Is it because it was strictly text and because you had to read it and understand it as the speed of its presentation and its size fluctuated, or would other images edited in a similar way affect you likewise?
anything edited with a black&white contrast, comparable to a strobe light, would i suppose jostle me up hard. the flickering of stop-motion is fine due to the continuity of frames and minimization of contrast. but the addition of having to engage the analytic faculty while watching, meaning that i had to process not only visual information but conceptual as well, certainly added to the vertigo.
