Trapped By The Web — But For How Long? Take the Kelberman Challenge

From NPR:

…from clouds to storms, from storms to lightning videos, from lightning videos to lights, from lights to … whatever. … You tell yourself, "Just one more, one or two more, then I’ll stop." But you don’t stop. They call this "surfing," but you’re not surfing — you’re not free. You keep clicking, knowing that you shouldn’t, knowing that you don’t want to … but you DO want to.

[In] a subtly addictive, psychologically sophisticated art project, created by Dina Kelberman, who must have studied at the Lay’s Potato Chip School of Addiction. (They had an ad that dared: "Betcha can’t eat just one!") She has pulled images from the Web and arranged them into a sensuously sly series of related sequences that move, in baby steps, just like your mind does, from one pattern to another.

Once you start looking at Dina’s pictures, I warn you: It’s very, very hard to stop.

Let me know how it goes in the comments.
