Control (Annotated)

This slideshow by Khoi Vinh of subtraction.com was compiled for the AIGA National Design Conference in Denver, Colordao, in October 2007, but is still totally relevant to anyone interested in web design and new media.

The basic jist concerns the advent of conversation as a new element of design, and the whole thing is quite beautifully presented, highlighting some excellent examples of quality new media and web design along the way.

Plastic is 100% non biodegradable. That means that every single piece of plastic ever produced by man is still on this planet today. I guess we could just flush it down the toilet? That’s basically what we’re doing every day, filling our oceans with plastic debris. Out of site out of mind yeah? Wrong, next time your eating sushi, just think your probably eating the plastic that that fish has been living on the past year. What goes around comes around.

Gyre, 2009

This image depicts 2.4 million pieces of plastic, equal to the estimated number of pounds of plastic pollution that enter the world’s oceans every hour. All of the plastic in this image was collected from the Pacific Ocean.

Great use of information design. Looking at where major cities in America get their water. As drought is a pressing issue in Australia it is always important to know where water is sourced and how much water is being consumed.

Nice design to show the consumption and recycling of metals in products in the US, and long we have left with them.

picture-4picture-5Great site from GE in the US.

Really effective in demonstrating how to redesign the grid to be more smart and efficient. This is one big part of the infrastructure problem.

Talked about by New York Times Columnist Thomas Friedman and Ted Nordhaus and Michael Shellenberger from the Break Through Institute.

Also with a sweet little bit of augmented reality there to tickle the techno freaks.
