Description (in English): 

"Timetrain" by Dorothee Lang is an ethereal experience created in Flash that uses the visuals of a train station in combination with audio and carefully crafted text to take the reader along for a ride. As images and phrases move across the screen and new juxtapositions are created, the reader is presented with opportunities for self-reflection. As the bottom of the picture moves to the right, forward, while the top of the picture moves to the left, backward suggesting spatial as well as temporal movements as trains "arrive" and "depart." The text floats in the middle as the pictures show a 360 degree view of the station.
