Comments Off on ‘A Short History of the Highrise’ Interactive Film Explores the 2,500-year Global History of Vertical Living

A Short History of the Highrise  is an interactive documentary that explores the 2,500-year global history of vertical living and issues of social equality in an increasingly urbanized world. The centerpiece of the project is a series of four short films. The first three ( Mud, Concrete and Glass ) draw on The New York Times’s extraordinary visual archives. Each film is intended to evoke a chapter in a storybook, with rhyming narration and photographs brought to life with intricate animation. The fourth chapter ( Home ) is comprised of images submitted by the public. The interactive experience incorporates the films and, like a visual accordion, allows viewers to dig deeper into the project’s themes with additional archival materials, text and microgames. On tablets, viewers can navigate the story extras and special features within the films using touch commands like swipe, pinch, pull and tap. On desktop and laptop computers, users can mouse over features and click to navigate.

Last weekend, a team of scientists traveled to Sweden to collect around 100 bumblebee queens, with the goal of releasing them in Kent in the south-east of the country. Reports say the species is thriving in the Swedish county of Skåne , where early bee preservation attempts were made in order to conserve areas of wild flowers.
