Violence is certainly common among all people...so is it possible to derive an aesthetic that can communicate the universality of the horrors of crime? Motomichi Nakamura's "Qrime" is an episodic series of short Flash animations that uses the basic color scheme of red, black and white and a simple, angular set of graphics to express the "feel" of violence efficiently to site visitors from any culture. The seven episodes are presented in a non-linear sequence that makes one think about the randomness and unpredictable nature of so much violent crime.
