Created to bring attention to the slaughter of sharks in the oceans. Sharks is a single page document that tells a lot about what you can't see. Created to be printed on a single sheet of paper, when printed, only tiny spots are visible on the page. On closer inspection, each spot is found to be a single shark. If counted, one would find 40,000 sharks on a single page. The bottom center of the page lets the viewer know that this details the number of sharks killed by people every year. The bottom right corner of the page says "1 of 2500" alluding to how many sheets are necessary to show the actual amount of sharks killed.

For full effect, download the png and print it on a sheet of paper. The movie file tries to demonstrate digitally and mathematically what the single sheet of paper represents.
