Credit crisis visualised

April 6, 2009 at 2:00 am 2 comments

Whilst trying to come to grips with the global financial crisis, I’ve been reading and researching. Came across this YouTube video, which explains how the credit crisis happened but what’s particularly interesting is that the videos were put together by a Media Design student, Jonathan Jarvis, as part of a thesis project. He wanted to explore the use of new media to make sense of an increasingly complex world.

So he uses animated figures and images to explain in simple, visual terms what the heck happened. Here are the videos for your viewing pleasure (Parts 1 and 2).

    Hi Kim,

    How are you. Can’t seem to see either the two videos, or links to them.

    Is it my browser?

    Best Regards,

    Hey Ian!! how are you? and what are you doing these days? I think it must be your browser, as I can see them on a Mac and a PC. But if anyone else can’t see the videos, let me know.
