A sprawl of images, videos, audio and text, “Highrise” leans towards the new-age culture of participation and interactivity which is becoming common online. Initially its set-up reminds me of the iPad magazine formats I have recently been introduced to. The way the images overlap and interchange as you scroll down the page makes you feel like you are in a moving space, more than looking at a 2D screen.
Only vaguely do I find it truly participatory. I ask myself how do I participate in this interactive experience? And truthfully, all I can do is click buttons and view the same set material in the order of my choice. I see how different people from all over the world have participated in making this and sharing their experiences of highrise buildings.
Okay so evidently there are ways to get involved as found here.
