This is a video that combines the information design we did earlier and the motion graphics that we saw in class. It manages to make something relatively uninteresting, such as the path of colonial ships, fun to watch. It may not be the absolute prettiest thing to look at, but I admire the work that went into looking at ship logs and finding out the path that each ship took on its way to the destination. If you can't make it the whole 12 minutes, watch another video by them that tracks all the ships in one year, for a more fast-paced version. I found this at a blog called kottke.org which is a site that posts tons of interesting things to watch/look at/read/think about. I recommend "Stupidity in Slow Motion."
