Tabular Vision & HTML Cinema
Both static and dynamic digital images have often been represented as ‘translated’ images, reinterpreted from an intermediate image file stored on the web. Lichty has translated such images to pure HTML code. As such, they represent a very ‘direct’ method of representation in the browser. In addition, there is a time-based element that occurs when the tables load into the browser, thus, HTML Cinema has two dimensions: the time of the load, and the time of the serial. Many of these images are excerpts from Lichty’s wristcam photography and video works. After conversion to pure code, several of the pages were unmanageable; therefore, they are a hybrid of code and console handicraft by the artist.
