I am spending the day with my friend and great artist Geraldine Erman who is making great 3D for the Web:

In searching their catalogue, I found many Chris Marker films that I have not seen and NEED TO: Immemory, a 1997 CD-ROM, and Prime Time in the Camps , 1993.

and i see a photo in my head.

the chairs all with stacks of newspapers with an image glowing on the spine
