It is amazing how many times I have passed those screens in the Link without really looking at them. It is also odd how it took me putting on a mirror mask that nearly covered my eyes before I really took a look at them. When I was looking through the slits it forced me to look through to only one screen, whichwas a little disorienting because I could only see one part of Prof. Seaman’s piece but I could really focus on that part, and the text that was being blown up by that section. It is how I decided to read it for about 10 minutes, it was a very strange experience. I loved the Tokyo photos, I lived there for a while so it was very cool for me. If another language had been included, like Japanese, that may have added aesthetic value, but I loved the interaction of text and picture it really worked. Also I saw my reflection in the screen when it was dark and then saw the mirror reflecting that and so on, it created an interesting image.
