A few weeks ago, I asked Donna Leishman for her thoughts about Jimmy Owenn's Blackeyed.com, especially her (or his) "Peau Nue." Her first reaction was very negative; now, Leishman's taken a second look.

The new discussion is extremely interesting. Notive how a change in frame rate seems to inspire new narrative interpretation: Eisenstein in action! By viewing the work on a faster system, Leishan sees new things: "headless torso lying on her back, someone kissing? (Did I see that or want to see that?) So now I feel something, some emotion, something more than watching loops of a semi-naked body."
