When I was up at Brown I ran into Michelle Higa, one of the four editors of Chaise Magazine. She gave me a copy of the first issue of this free DVD magazine (which has some associated Web selections.) Having now watched the videos (one of them is documentation Michelle did of the project Screen, a project of GTxA’s Noah Wardrip-Fruin and others), seen the stills, and listened to the audio, and poked at the interactive goodies, I am quite impressed and amused. This isn’t an upgrade of your cheesy mid-1990s CD magazine, but a collection of several great projects from digital media workers at Brown and RISD.
