Like a map(?)...viewers have the freedom to chart their own course through the artworks. Reading a DVD is nothing like reading a magazine, though, and sometimes the effort of re-cycling back to the main menu to browse the next project is a confusing, albeit liberating, enterprise. By demanding full reader engagement in this way, Chaise both proscribes an art experience (no flipping through ads while watching tv) and demands respect.

Trend away from source materials printed after 1923, unless you want to do a copyright search on them. The underlying rights may not belong to the publisher-- if you can even find the publisher in today's publishing environment-- and you'd be liable to the copyright holder, who may or may not be the creator. It's just easier & safer to stick with OLD original materials.
