This weekend let’s take a look at videos which focuses on some of the major problems we are facing.
The first video is very disturbing and makes you think what a dangerous world we are living in. It’s a 14 minute long video but it’s worth spending time on watching this very informative video. The video titled “1945-1998″ created by Isao Hashimoto shows all the nuclear tests done by various countries from 1945-1998. 2053 tests!! It’s crazy.
About the video by Isao Hashimoto:
“This piece of work is a bird’s eye view of the history by scaling down a month length of time into one second. No letter is used for equal messaging to all viewers without language barrier. The blinking light, sound and the numbers on the world map show when, where and how many experiments each country have conducted. I created this work for the means of an interface to the people who are yet to know of the extremely grave, but present problem of the world.”
Second video is not that alarming as the previous one, but it focuses on another major problem we are facing- hunger. The video is titled “How to feed the world” and was mainly aimed at kids in the age range of 9-14, but even adults have alot to learn from this simplistic video about the hunger problem in the world.

The last video for this weekend explains current credit crisis the world is facing in simplistic manner. It might be little boring for many of us but credit crisis is affecting the whole world and it’s better we understand little bit as to what happened and what caused the global financial meltdown.
