Parts make a whole (Interact by moving mouse over the black area for each piece; scroll horizontally to interact with each piece.)








Chambers put together this exercise in irony and interaction leading to possible frustration for the participant. He doesn't necessarily want you [the participant] to view the whole, which is a record of one of the saddest and most shameful periods in his country's [America] history. Perhaps a part or glimpse is enough. However, it is possible to access the record through continued utilization of the mouse - a chasing of history, if you will. And as you move the mouse about, the exercise [each piece] also becomes kinetic (Abstract Expressionistic).
