One In Many

The concept of 6 Billion Others is as beautiful as the aesthetics of the site itself. In a time when "I" is the society's reigning deity, this is a refreshing departure encouraging us to seek the common, unifying themes that join diverse cultures and peoples.

The idea of
mapping states in America to countries with similar GDPs is interesting in that it brings far flung countries together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Political and geographical boundaries turn insignificant in the context of their collocation. You wonder what might happen if borders could morph at will and regional tensions be eased merely by bringing in some new neighbors.
