Audio Slideshows

Crafting Beauty from Death.

Portrait of Schizophrenia.

I’d been skeptical of audio slideshows as a method of storytelling. Not because they didn’t look cool, which they do, and not because they’re not fun to play with and make, which they are. Something about the juxtaposition of still photographs with audio seems unnatural, like a powerpoint presentation.

But after watching these, I realize I might have judged them unfairly. Like any good sequential art (comics, for example), what seems like an unnatural combination can be powerful and moving in the hands of someone who uses it for that single effect.
