Video: Fifteen years of terrorism

This is an incredible video put together by Milan Vuckovic, a Berlin designer who started putting it together after the attacks in Paris.

He documented every terrorist attack in the last 15 years in which at least 21 people died.

“During this design process I learned a lot about the nature of news reporting on global terrorism,” he writes. “This project changed my perception of this daily phenomenon greatly as I got caught up in studying individual occurrences and their heartbreaking stories. My investigation also taught me that there isn’t, and there can not be, such a thing as a perfect database of terror since terror is essentially ambiguous. That is how this video should be viewed, as well – something that provides a superficial impression of one aspect of our existence.”

And he suggests that the video supports the claim that terrorism does not work.
