Knowledge is power

The Middle East conflict is an issue where opinions are often clearly divided. The thing is I think most people aren’t really that knowledgeable about the issue. People get worked up on some basis or the other when they start talking about it – if not on a humanitarian basis, they know people from the countries involved, or they have strong ideas on the politics of it. For all those who’d like a historic, visual representation of the issue based on fact, Axel Rudolph, a student at Ravensburg College in Germany, created a video for his degree in media design that I think does a beautiful job of this.
