A Day in Flight

Aaron Koblin's
Animation of flight traffic patterns and density.

Koblin's Flight Patterns reflect one day of air travel as they transcend to, from, and within the U.S. I think in a way it is obvious that you can see the relationship between these aerial taxis and the taxis of San Francisco, in how they both generate a network or framework that reveals patterns of density. Flight Patterns becomes an established infrastructure, the air is in a way completely free of obstruction, but the patterns begin to reveal an aerial infrastructure that links a series of nodes (major cities).

  1. I think it is rare to be able to accumulate and view so much definitive information. How many of our regular daily activities are so beautiful when viewed in mass and from a significant distance?
