Last Words, Web site
Last Words is a narrative of eight individuals, their brief archetypal histories, and their last words spoken at the moment of death. Using text, images, and video, the piece attempts a new approach toward narrative by having the video and text obliquely play off each other, while the images (with their accompanying definitions and first person narrative lines) add an extra visual and metaphorical
dimension. The piece is a narrative montage and is navigated either linearly or through the viewer's random engagement with the interactive menu.
This piece should play on any tablet, laptop, or desktop device (desktop, iPad, Droid, laptop, etc.).
