We need to hold on tight as the power of projection provokes a marked sense of vertigo.
Darkness embraces us, even swallows us. One must allow oneself to become one with it. A husband and wife in the woods at a nudist camp, N. Even though we identify ourselves with them, the stranger has first been part of a conscious selection of models.
Flirt - a Flash Runtime
Arbus hunts out forms that can be judged as impure, hidden from the view of everyday onlookers. These people are shown as themselves, freed from any kind of mystification.
Through this definition of normality and the search for its reformulation, or even abolition, Arbus prefers to express the solitude of the individuals, further underlining it with the very violence of the photographic act, the sudden incandescence of the flashbulb, as can also be seen in the work of Lorca Di-Corcia. Here a burning pine tree appears just as lost as a dwarf in a rocking chair. In an interview she explained that she barely saw any need to even develop the photographs, since in the relationship between play and otherness, between tenderness and spontaneity, she had already perceived something which could be the total summation of beauty.
A stranger walks among deformed bodies, but through the essence of reflected faces, Diane Arbus photographs the stranger inside us.

It would be reductive and incorrect to consider the work of Arbus as a bestiary of bizarre bodies, since it is through these everyday landscapes that the photographer allows the unknown to break free and become apparent.
The point is, though, it's surprising how far I got on this, yet still came up so short. I only hope that with the new license it might be useful to more people and I'll have more to show for all the time I put into it. It's been a great learning experience and I'm certainly proud of what I've accomplished here—even if it's not quite enough.

I'll try to get the new license text in this weekend along with some fixes sent in. I also found that the code in CVS has been busted for the last six months, so, uh, sorry about that.
All this is in CVS, not in the source download. I'll get a package built up at the end of the weekend when I'm done fixing things. This means you can build actionscript wrappers for native C code and do more with actionscript than you could in "normal" Flash.
The Extension API doc describes this in more detail and shows how to build an object that renders a movie clip into a bitmap and saves it as a PNG file. Also, I found that the Linux build didn't have the endian setting right out of the box.
That's fixed, so ActionScript should work a lot better over there. Though if you're running Linux on big-endian hardware, you'll want to change the define in the Makefile.

Plus, I finally got my vacation photos online. I know you've been waiting for them! Check the links to the left for mailing list and project page. It's not currently in a very usable state yet—I'm releasing it so I'll be more motivated to get it working, because it won't ever happen at the current rate of development.
