Andrew has updated Interactive Narratives. Much nice stuff is linked there. It should keep you busy throughout the long (U.S.) holiday weekend.

He also mentioned Their Circular Life, one of those stunning Flash experiences that you won’t easily forget. It must be more than two years since I first saw it, but just reading the title, I remembered the sense of wonder I felt then. Ah, I envy you if you have not yet had the pleasure.

One slideshow package that’s not linked on the I-N blog: Blighted Homeland, with photography and audio by Gail Fisher, produced by MediaStorm. The setting is the Navajo lands of the Southwestern United States, and the images will sweep you away. The story: tragic.

From 1944 to 1986, 3.9 million tons of uranium ore were dug and blasted from Navajo soil, nearly all of it for America’s atomic arsenal. Navajos inhaled radioactive dust, drank contaminated water and built homes using rock from the mines and mills. Many of the dangers persist to this day.

The four-part text package is here.
