Circulatory System

Generative Data Installation

Circulatory System is an installation formed by a generative software that graphically visualizes the world’s air traffic in an animation of moving lines drawing the takeoff and arrival points of all the planes of our planet.

As a metaphor, the installation questions the relationship between the human body and Earth. By using air transport and it’s continuous flow to frame the conversation, the projects calls out questions about the sustainability of life – both on a macro and micro level.
