Out of Sight, Out of Mind

I previously wrote about the way our drone debate was happening in America: largely focused on the infinitesimal possibility of American deaths while ignoring the plight of the thousands of Pakistani civilians that have died in the strikes.

Today I stumbled upon Out of Sight, Out of Mind, a stunning visualization of America’s drone war in Pakistan.

The Economist writes,

The project was the brainchild of Wesley Grubbs, the creative and technology director at Pitch. He collected the data and guided the narration and animation development. Mladen Balog created the initial designs and its overall look and feel. Nicholas Yahnke did some data research and verification, and built the site in HTML5. It took four weeks to pull together.

Check it out.
