How Class Works
In 2011, I worked with Interactive Knowledge (and my own team of animators) to product this 12 minute video for the National Association of County & City Health Officals (NACCHO) to illustrate a lecture given by renowned economist Richard Wolff about class inequity in the United States. The video is a fascinating look at middle class economic concerns and how they relate to the overall well-being of our society. My own work on this piece pre-dated the Occupy Wall Street movement by only a few months and many of the issues discussed here were exactly what the movement was trying to raise awareness of.
The goal of this project was to take an audio lecture and visualize the somewhat complex concepts that Wolff talks about. Part of the video consists of photography while the rest is illustrated by myself.
You can watch the entire video here at NACCHO’s Roots of Health Inequity website designed and produced by Interactive Knowledge.
