Cynema: An Interactive Playground

Mike Leggett
Catalogue essay

The twenty or so CD-ROM discs selected for this preview of interactive multimedia are those related to the aesthetics of cinema. In particular, my focus was the traditions of the narrative form that have evolved through the cinema of documentary, but demonstrate and explore the ways in which a new aesthetic is beginning to emerge from a new medium. The exhibition happened at The Hub, a cafe in central Brisbane and was commissioned by Anne Demy-Geroe, director of the Brisbane International Film Festival with the theme for 1996 of From Silver to Silicon.
