Slippery Traces is a non-linear, visual narrative in which the viewer navigates through a web of 230 interconnected postcards that are classified and linked according to literal and metaphoric properties. Each postcard contains approximately five 'hot spots' or links to about ten other images. The user constructs a viewing sequence by clicking the mouse on a hot spot of interest in the current image that leads to another image. The resultant sequence of linked images can be reviewed to examine the evolving 'meta-narrative' and the particular connections derived through one's choices. - George Legrady -
