D-Fuse's Small Global

Below is a sample video of a D-Fuse vs Nonplace DVD that is available for purchase. The information on the Small Global installation is located below it.

D-Fuse's Small Global is a multichannel video/motion gfx installation that uses animated images and vector maps of the planet to explore environmental and immigration issues. Small Global juxtaposes visualizations of pairs of data sets to highlight relationships that often go unnoticed by mass media. For example, the mining and price of coltan (the metal used in mobile phone chips) in Congo is mapped against the human death toll and extermination of Congo's highland gorillas.
