A Collaborative Internet Art Project

I recently came upon ZoomQuilt, a collaborative art project. This is a collaboration of 15 people who created an interactive art piece. The interesting thing is that once you go to the website, you can click and move the mouse from the bottom of the screen to the top of the screen and "move forward" (or backward) through the piece. As you do this, you're "zooming" into the center of the piece (you can't pan around). Eventually you will "move through" the current art piece and into the next art piece. There are several pieces you will move through, eventually coming back to where you started. I think one of the most interesting things is being able to enlarge what you see. It's like looking at you favorite painting and being able to zoom in to see it in more detail, you're surprised to see things you didn't even know were there. Of course, in this art piece, as you zoom in, you really do see things that "weren't there". The images are a bit "dark", but I'd like to see more of these zoom quilt's on the Net.

Comments:

Interesting. Infinite Regression. But they are onto something. Now if they could ad panning and other "tunnels". And do the whole thing in a 3D model. I could see a giant 3D virtual world composed by art students around the world. Different kinds of pictures/sculptures, all kinds of stuff. It would be really cool.
