Lives Connected

A webdocumentary about Hurricane Katrina, which hit New Orleans in the summer of 2005.

44 interviews with employees of an advertising agency, all of whom were involved in the disaster in some way, can be navigated by tags such as “funny”, “damage” and “pet”.

New Orleans based advertising firm Peter Mayer created this interactive data visualization site entitled Lives Connected to coincide with the end of hurricane season. It’s an interesting experiment, and ended up being quite the repository documenting the experiences of Hurricane Katrina and the people affected by it. The interface they built allows you to access 44 different peoples video-taped stories, and then connect each person by thematic
association.
