View the Flash movie The basic concept for this version of the Typographic site came to Chen while he was doing some motion graphics work for MTV. A single-colour frame was accidentally inserted into the piece and created a shock-like effect. Chen thought it was cool and started adding single frames into some of his work. "I didn't synch it to anything," he notes, "so it gives it an uncomfortable effect."
Working on this piece actually gave Chen a bit of a headache, but he survived. The image you see, incidentally is a photo Chen took at the Getty Museum in LA.
