Scrolling wheel workout for your computer mouse
+ visual feast for your eyes

Please wait for images to load

Yet another "computer specific" (or rather "monitor-specific") art-form is emerging on the net - images designed for viewing by scrolling down, and down, and down - to marvel at the VERTICALLY unfolding vistas. It also can be a bit disorienting... Have a look at these examples:

The Dizzying Bridge

You may have seen this image circulating in emails around a year ago. This photograph is probably responsible for starting it all, and certainly works very well (especially if you keep scrolling up and down, creating the swinging effect)

Into the Forest

Tony Karp at Techno Impressionist Museum makes pictures that are too large for your browser window. They are often eclectic, but always seemless and intriguing. Here is an example, see more at his site.

Scrolling through the spiritual realm

A 39-foot long scroll created by Naxi people of Yunnan Province, China (around a year 1500) depicts the spiritual realms through which the deceased soul has to travel on its way to paradise. It has 103 sections and serves as a bridge for the soul to "reach the realm of the gods" (according to certain elements of Tibetian and Indian Tantric religions)

Here is the lower resolution version, showing only a part of this incredibly long scroll, but on this page you can view it complete and at "high res"!

Scrolling into outer space

Found on Pruned via BldgBlog, here is a stupendous scrolling across the Jupiter's landscape (a cylindrical projection, stitched from the photos taken by Cassini spacecraft):

Some interesting HORIZONTAL scrolling can be found here
