Behind every web page are two basic programming languages, namely HTML and CSS. To see what it looks like, one might right-click on any page of the website and display the source code of the page. After a first website design in 2015 as a school portfolio, Laurent Delom starts again with the same conviction: If we consider HTML and CSS as a media (like brushes and colors for a painter), we can produce artistic objects. At the base of this new design project comes the question: is it possible on a website to follow a narrative-like thread while still satisfying the visitor’s need to choose his way? Or did we definitely lose the possibility of narration to the all-inclusive summary opening page?
In his previous website, Laurent Delom proposed an answer to that question by limiting and orienting choices for navigation. In the present case entitled “about the movie” Laurent Delom provides an external narrative support by displaying chronological shots from the 1967 movie “Adiós Adiós”.
This being said, one has to know now that the movie “Adiós Adiós” doesn’t exist. It was forged from a set of low-quality photographs only to provide the required narrative trough the website. The images were collected on Laurent Delom’s cell phone with a fine resolution of 128x160 pixels. They were shot in the area of his parents’ house in the south of France while the beach and palm tree were shot during his stay in Mexico.
