Sitting at home, eating icecream , infographics, and why people drink..

Via Flowing Data, a video from Current that uses infographics combined with an interesting assortment of associations that tip-toe around the meaning of life...

The longer version, possible remix?

I did a bit of hunting and found some information about these clips:

From the Clemenskogler.net website:

"Le Grand Content examines the omnipresent Powerpoint-culture in search for its philosophical potential. Intersections and diagrams are assembled to form a grand 'association-chain-massacre'. which challenges itself to answer all questions of the universe and some more. Of course, it totally fails this assignment, but in its failure it still manages to produce some magical nuance and shades between the great topics death, cable tv, emotions and hamsters."

"The film is a co-production with Karo Szmit. Narration is by Andre Tschinder. The diagrams are inspired by the site indexed.blogspot.com created by Jessica Hagy.
There is also an alternate version with music by Andre Tschinder instead of Aphex Twin."

Narration for the longer clip can be found here.
