Airsick: An Industrial Devolution

Airsick: An Industrial Devolution from Lucas Oleniuk on Vimeo.

This is a multimedia story by photojournalist Lucas Oleniuk. The story focuses on climate change and the overconsumption of humanity. Oleniuk utilizes photographs, text, animation, and music in order to convey the warnings of industrial consumption and the effects it has on the earth. The audio is most effective. The music is almost haunting and adds great tension as it accompanies the photographs and quotes. It gives the black and white still images almost an eerie vibe, creating a somewhat unsettling effect upon the audience.  It jars the audience a bit, and truly fits the mood Oleniuk seems to be trying to achieve. The entire story, however, is editorial. I think that’s something that has to be kept in mind while viewing the video.
