This video, which uses words and meaning to stitch together a series of otherwise unrelated shots, was created by Everynone in collaboration with WNYC’s Radiolab and National Public Radio. It was shown as part of our “Long Short” series of short films that convey long term thinking. This Long Short was screened at Lera Boroditsky’s “How Language Shapes Thought” SALT.
