Making the Invisible Visible

In a prior post, I talked about my experiences at the LA-IP conference, and about the general theme of tracing connections between people, place and time, in order to make the invisible, visible.

Here’s a video of a Radiohead song “All I need” which is my favorite tune from In Rainbows. It uses a simple split-screen to explore a day in the life of an ordinary (and presumably) American kid and an Asian child-laborer in a shoe factory.

I find this kind of storytelling to be utterly brilliant in its simplicity. I also have to wonder how long it will take before people look back and wonder why we were willing to go about our lives without taking into consideration the full impact of our choices.
