Being There with the Melons

See Video

This was a drama of an American couple metamorphosed into melons by their television set. Just as they become comfortable in their new form a coffee maker left on threatens their existence. The viewer could look about the room using their touchtone phone as the drama unfolded. It was a linear narrative with an enhanced viewpoint.

Technical Notes: This was HyperCard overlaid on a videodisc. Blackboxs DTMF to ASCII converter decoded the touch-tones. I used the camera rig that I put together for Apple to capture the scene.
