The Value of Nothing

It makes me absurdly happy when someone puts potent unforgettable images to important abstract concepts.

That could be one definition of poetry.

My friend Raj Patel nails it with this 4-minute video for his latest book, The Value Of Nothing.

It begins with a giant animated cockroach (Kafka's Metamorphosis) and ends with a slow-motion 360-degree backflip off a high-diving board. Watch the video and you'll see how perfectly each image captures a paradigm - or paradigm-shift.
