Would (a Prologue) began when I was asked if I wanted to contribute something to BOMB Daily and I decided that I wanted to create something that would only be viewable online. I have been working for some time on a graphic novel and Would is a kind of introduction to that larger project. At the same time, it is something independent and complete on its own.
Would is a website that, on the surface, offers a series of windows through which to gaze at a passing world. It is my version of a landscape for the web, really. If you choose to move your mouse over the windows a narrative is revealed. The text is a little ridiculous at times, and also a little serious. It contains a few jokes as well as a few unfortunate realities. It is important that the text is an option and not an obligation though, because there are not enough basic landscapes on the Internet. All of the images are public domain, as well as the music, and I think that is important too.
