Generative Data Installation

CONTEXT
Instituto Itaú Cultural is a Brazilian not-for-profit cultural institute. It
holds the program Rumos for cultural research, which
commissioned this project.

CHALLENGE
Make a data sculpture that captures an instant of everything that is
happening in the earth’s atmosphere.

EXPERIENCE
We created an installation informed by a generative software that
graphically visualizes in real time the world’s air traffic. The animation
projected on a globe depicted lines drawing the takeoff and arrival
points of all the planes on Earth.
