Jonathan Safran Foer's 'Tree of Codes' (2010) "is actually a kind of interactive paper-sculpture: Foer and his collaborators at Die Keure in Belgium took the pages of another book, Bruno Schulz's The Street of Crocodiles, and literally carved a brand new story out of them using a die-cut technique.
According to Foer's publisher Visual Editions, Tree of Codes was turned down by every printer they approached: 'Their stock line [was], 'the book you want to make just cannot be made'.'…
The luscious results, designed by Sara de Bondt, will fly in the face of anyone who says that physical books are passé. Tree of Codes is tactile, interactive, immersive--and it won't ever run out of batteries."

"Take 8-bit gadgets (old computers, handheld games, Nintendos, etc), record those blips and bleeps, and string 'em together to make sweet, sweet music -- and you've got the genre known as bitpop. Or chiptune. Or, simply enough, 8-bit. The bitpop world owes a debt to the original bleepers -- krautrockers Kraftwerk"

['8 bit Girl' by by 'Chaosqaal' on YouTube appears to reference the music genre of the chiptune.]
I created this short clip in 1995 from re-purposed shots from Fritz Lang's 1952 film 'Rancho Notorious'. This sequence works to expose homoerotic tensions inherent in the Western film genre.
The sequence shows Vern Haskell Rancho Notorious' protagonist, struggle to 'escape the frame' and the admiring advances of his outlaw compatriots. Through deleting the subject of the cowboy's attentions Marlene Dietrich, I was able to shift the meaning of the scene from one that centred on heterosexual interest to one that centred on homosexual desire.
I created the sound track using a similar technique. I did so through splicing sections of the original sound track together so that it would evoke some of the melodrama of the original film.
The clip was created using the early non-linear editing platform Avid Media Suite Pro.
