This picture is of a stream
that runs off Mount Olympus in Northern Greece. It explores the motion
of the water, as well as the notions of photographic depth of field
and exposure length.
Move the mouse towards the top, and you will bring the focal plane
of the picture forward, blurring the stream to focus instead on different
parts of the foliage in the foreground.
If you stroke the picture rapidly, the flow of water smudges together,
like a photograph taken with a long exposure, while the stream changes
in an ever increasing rush - stop stroking, the stream slows down.
Hold the mouse down, and you will freeze the instant of motion.
Sound serves as "atmosphérique" material: the rustle
of the stream becomes muffled when the focal plane leaves the river
for the foliage in the foreground. It quickens with the motion of the
