ROM by Mediamatic
adapts the themes discussed at a conference on interactive media for the
computer screen in a fresh and innovative style. The conference was held
in Amsterdam in 1993. On the two dimensional horizon of the screen, the
viewer can proceed left and right along the tableaux of the participants
distorted into balls which are separated by information icons. The balls
embody the eight themes of the conference and offer an overview of them
with text and sound. Above and below the balls, one can see the participants'
heads. On enlarging a head, lips appear below it which articulate different
sounds of speech and music, sometimes fragments of sentences, in case
of each speaker. They might serve as funny musical instruments to anyone
who goes in for composing.
