Brief description (from 2000):

“sm.N” is navigational digital web movie that runs only on the internet. There is no offline version. When you run the movie, you can enjoy sequences and the sad story about love, emotions in general, and broken communication. Moving images are accompanied with MIDI sound and metaphoric (imaginational) english subtitles.

There is of course a possibility to click on every sequence in the movie and to explore the links which are already predefined. There are very basic URLs (words) like:

… etc.

Some of the URLs doesn’t even exist. One can see what content is included in those sites (URLs). With the combination of the sm.N movie (story ), subtitles and sound, you can get a conceptual point of view on how to understand those external basic URLs and the meaning of words. URL becomes more than an address: the address becomes the content / territory.
