You’ve never experienced Star Wars like this before.
I haven’t had the time myself to take it all in, but this new way of telling an old story is massive and basically mind-blowing. A 34-year-old graphic artist from Zurich – Martin Panchaud – has created an online scroll of infographic imagery that tells the entire story of Star Wars: A New Hope (hence the URL address SWANH.net)
Panchaud describes his inspiration:
- This long ribbon reminds me of the ancient Chinese script rolls that had to be rolled in and rolled out simultaneously in order to be read. I like this stretch between ages, cultures, and technologies.
In actual numbers: it’s one story, in one piece, and 123 meters in length. That’s 403.5 feet to you and me here in the States.
