WE WERE APPROACHED TO CREATE THIS ANIMATION to promote A book published by Routledge in 2015.

Our Cargomobilities animation summarises the key themes of the book ‘Cargomobilities – Moving materials in a global age”. Here is a description of the book:

Objects and materials are on the move like never before, often at astonishing speeds and along hidden routeways. This collection opens to social scientific scrutiny the various systems which move objects about the world, examining their fateful implications for many people and places. Offering texts from key thinkers, the book presents case studies from around the world which report on efforts to establish, maintain, disrupt or transform the cargo-mobility systems which have grown so dramatically in scale and significance in recent decades.
