‘Meanwhile in Brazil’ is a visual newsfeed that contrasts daily on-pitch action with protests in the streets during the 2014 World Cup.
While the World Cup games where the front page of media all around the world, little attention was given to the citizens rioting right outside of the stadiums for what they considered a billion dollar business at their own expense.
The ‘Meanwhile in Brazil’ project aimed to put the World Cup’s highlights in perspective, comparing the stats gathered from inside and outside the stadiums: red cards versus civilian arrests, the stadium audience versus riot participants and so forth.
The ‘Meanwhile in Brazil’ project was featured in Creative Review, amongst other media.
