SYNOPSIS

A scientific formula, which was to liquidate world debt, has been stolen from Ricard Enterprises ! Thus begins the story of Liquidation, a plurimedia work. The title is also the theme of this photo romance that casts both a critical and playful eye on our lives and cities, where endless accumulation leads to endless liquidation. After having completed a printed version in 1995 and a web-radio version of this work in 1998 the authors now present a CD-Rom version of this random fiction.

PRoman, a custom software designed by Alain Bergeron, uses combinatorial functions to randomly choose photos, display effects, text and sound according to the viewing duration choosen by the user (20 to 120 minutes). Although the inteface allows for a sequential viewing, the CD-Rom version of Liquidation can be best likened to a film that changes every time it is seen.
