This is the first in a series I hope to make, so the simplicity of it is the jump of my start.
Looking at the affects of Globalization as an West to East phenomenon can sometimes narrow the perspective of the changing world at large. This little animation of the English speaking Arab girl in the West shows how much choice she has when making even the smallest choices in her day to day life.
In questioning my own dogmatic opinion on 'globalization' I would like to illustrate (perhaps to myself) that the international spread, as I just decided I can call it, is something that has exploited and satisfied necessity in both directions. With all the Arabs in London - doing business, living, holidaying, taking part in events, and so on - the businesses (enterprise, corporate visibility) has followed the human. Is it so bad if commerce follows people? Perhaps only in the way it is treated.
