- Because the effect relies on mouse movement it is best viewed using a desktop browser. However,
when viewed on mobile a tilt-based effect substitutes - turn your mobile to landscape, pinch to zoom-out
fully, then tilt to see the effect.
Best experienced on a desktop browser (at full-screen) this web experiment attempts to create a feeling of both immersion and place by combining several visual elements into 'web dioramas'.
Deliberately dreary suburban photography is a base layer. Another layer toys with carefully aligned web typography, adding poetic
meaning to the imagery, while yet another adds foreground. Finally, a parallax effect makes it feel as though the diorama has depth when the mouse is moved on the page. Enjoy.
Surprisingly, much of this dreary photo-imagery sources from the
bright, artistic, and relatively upscale 10960 Zip code.
