A film director can control an audience’s sequence of experience better than a photographer. If you want to create a shared context and an anchored outcome, act more like a director. If you want wider variability in interpretation and a less bounded outcome, act more like a photographer. The ability to control the sequence (or intentionally not control the sequence) has application to information messaging, activity scheduling, architecture planning, etc. Thanks to Brad Lapin via Whitespace Gallery for the original thought.
