Le Grand Content
This is an old video but it’s amazing and I had to post it. I was blasting around the web looking at various inforgraphics and I came upon the fantastic indexed again. The video above, Le Grand Content, was inspired by the site, and is a similarly excellent collection of random and insightful anecdotes (this time in motion) about nothing in particular. Any time you have a graph with time on one axis and “the adventures you’ve taken” on the other, I am going to be intrigued. The voice over by Andre Tschinder is my favorite part — the delivery is oddly perfect (…”but speaking of forever, it’s obvious that this takes some time”.)
Le Grand Content examines the omnipresent Powerpoint-culture in search for its philosophical potential. Intersections and diagrams are assembled to form a grand ‘association-chain-massacre’. which challenges itself to answer all questions of the universe and some more. Of course, it totally fails this assignment, but in its failure it still manages to produce some magical nuance and shades between the great topics death, cable tv, emotions and hamsters. by Clemens Kogler

What a great video. It shows the power of data visualisation (even when the data is made up!)

Airside just made an infographic video about Power in the UK. They are the design side of Lemon Jelly. Good stuff. http://www.airside.co.uk/blog/?p=420

great vid. Thanks for sharing Alex.
I agree with Clemens Kogler that the video “totally fails this assignment” but it’s still enjoyable nonetheless.
My favorite part was when the spam circle just kept growing. haaaha.
