Online > Offline: David Lynch set up his own web community where people’s own films and ideas could feature. He used these ideas/trains of thought for his film Inland Empire

Janet Cardiff, sound artist, does video walks. Builds narrative experiences with sound and video. The film on the DV camera screen ends up taking precedence as you move through the same places. You end up following the camera.
