To the Scrollbar, with Love and Respect

Daraja Daut’s work in last semester’s Magic Paper group was centered around scrollbars: their invention and acceptance, their metamorphoses through time and operating systems and their gradual disappearance from interfaces in the last couple of years.

Prism, Feather and Infinite are three pages that show that scrollbars are too early to write off. Scrolling is an experience unique to the GUI. Darja’s work makes this experience ultimate. Explore forms, colors and outer space by scrolling. In Firefox only.
