Macro in Doc1: Praxinoscope

Download (42,943KB Microsoft Word Macro-Enabled Document)

Doc1 was created when my Outlook Email inbox began acting up one afternoon. Being a fan of glitches and looking for a distraction, I began taking screenshots. While capturing the trails of windows created by the Outlook malfunction to my clip-board, I opened a Word Doc to easily paste the screenshots into.

As the newly pasted images scrolled the document down, I began to relate to the multi-paged document as a film-strip. By capturing the error windows floating and smearing on top of the screenshots pasted into Word, a multi-layered feedback-loop opened up and consumed my afternoon.

You can "play" the document by running the attached macro. It contains a macro called “Praxinoscope" named for the animation device invented in France in 1877.
