Allan MacKinnon sent me this video, as an example of a great visualization. I am sharing it a s public service…I think I did not fully “get” the credit crisis until I watched it. OK, so I admit it. I am a dunce.
Here’s what the creator of the video, Jonathan Jarvis, says:
The Crisis of Credit Visualized distills the economic crisis into a short and simple story by giving it form. It is also argues that designers have the ability to see a complex situation, then turn around and communicate it to others. By giving graphic form to the credit crisis, it becomes comprehensible. Not only do economic activities take shape, but new relationships can emerge between these shapes.
