3"




A thrillingly inventive visual mystery, told in 3 seconds - it's up to you to provide the solution

This is a detective mystery.

It lasts only 3 seconds.

Which is enough time for a particle of light to travel 900,000 kilometres.

And as you follow it on its journey - through scenes of deadly drama and seeming innocence, as far as deep space and back - look into the blind spots and corners. There are clues there: connections between the characters, motives, intrigues, crimes and plots.

You are the detective.

Find the solution.

Praise for 3"

“Innovative… And then you're hooked. Each snapshot carries you forward a little further, bouncing you around the room, showing you different perspectives, before you bounce out the window and into the world. Your mission? Solve the mystery.”

Kadhin Shubber, Wired

“A paper and digital product: hello future.”
