The narrow column of type is intended to give the reader a sense of vertigo or falling. The image reads as a map or set of traffic patterns before reading the excerpt. After reading, the bright spots indicate the people mentioned in the passage. The layout provides a sense of distance from the subjects, but also a sense of inevitability, of movement towards an unavoidable outcome.
