On clicking the first picture under the scrolling text bar, a pop-up window appears, showing the first couple of words from the scrolling text bar. Another pop-up comes up, showing the next couple of words, and this tendency continues throughout the piece; with each pop-up, the screen becomes more and more crowded with black boxes with small, white letters. These pop-ups appear sometimes one after another in a square pattern, yet, sometimes, the pictures appear in varying order.
Similar pop-ups emerge when the user clicks on the thumbnails at the left of the screen or the rectangular pictures at the bottom. These pop-ups appear in sequential order and end up showing a full picture; other times, a single pop-up box opens up and reveals parts of a picture, eventually forming a whole image.
This piece suggests that people form crowds for no reason other than to have safety in numbers in the event of a crisis, an idea that is illustrated by the seemingly sporadic appearance of pop-ups in the piece. Other times, people form together in more orderly means, as demonstrated through the orderly display of pop-ups that appear in a square pattern, one after another. In any case, crowds + power presents power in numbers, overpowering the user’s computer screen with pop-ups.
