web interfaces

One thing at a time. Small chunks of information.

Simplistic navigation, and a nice flow.

Cells: War on Weird and Four Derangements, web-comics by Daniel Merlin Goodbrey, allow audience to interact with the comics. The entire comic is mapped out on Cells: War on Weird, which also works as a clear navigation where you can zoom in and out.

Drew Weing's "Pup" Ponders the Heat Death of the Universe, another web-comic, uses one giant page where visitors scroll instead. It feels more physical somehow. starts off with a short text and sound, and I'm left confused and curious to what happens next. Visual work and structure to highlight fluid memories and unreliable information to show what - I'm guessing - is like to have

            Alzheimer's disease. 

I wonder what it's like to lose your job, and all familiar things in life. They all become memories irrelevant to others.

And you feel foreign to the place which is your home.

In East Germany.
