Storytelling with Interactivity - the aftermath of Sandy

This is one of the most compelling pieces of visual storytelling the destruction caused by superstorm Sandy. Swipe from side to side to see satellite images before and after of popular landmarks. The sense of destruction is inherent in the form of the visual, giving the user the power to destroy the coastline in one simple swipe. Make no mistake, they thought about which way to slide the bar - and it purposefully moves from left to right as did the storm. The user essentially becomes the destroyer, thus appreciating the power or the storm represented by their action.
