Type Research Diary: Conclusion

This project has been with me and you, dear reader, for a while now, and I am happy to say that this, too has reached a stage of near-completeness.

Together with the magazine from the last post, the culturefile is the first part of a three-part cycle I am working on about the Arab spring. This part is the past, the second part, presented before this one, the present and the third part, due begin in late July, will represent the future.

So, in todays ongoing mission of spreading happiness through spreads, this:

Many thanks to all of those who have involved themselves in this project through interest, coercion or necessity!

A Note: This still lacks a name. Suggestions are welcome!

The same applies to this project as did to the last: To anyone happening on this blog and finding their material within: Up to now, this project is entirely non-commercial. Should my use of your output offend you, please get in touch with me.

Two minutes: Addiction is Life is Yellow.

Addiction is a much-maligned, muddy word. Until (ca.) the 18th century, it connoted tendency and drive, rather than (self-) affliction. Opium changed that- reportedly. 
Lives described as addiction: to the approval and company of peers, to power and its accumulation, to enjoyment and personal satisfaction (to some people, this may be suffering) and to basics such as air, food, water… and possibly even living. When framed this way, and defined in reference to this word, life suddenly becomes a selfish pursuit in which the living will do anything to get their fix, devoted addicts all. 
On that note: Marylin Manson - I Don't Like the Drugs, But the Drugs Like Me. 
Also: Addiction is apparently yellow.

Not being able to do decent research into nutrition forced me to get a bit creative with this one. And do actual maths. Thanks to Ugur & Silke for their help in this.
Extra Info: this is what a single grain of rice looks like close up:

I wonder if a series of single grain infographics would be would be interesting?
