Custom software, data driven animation, computers, screen or projector
Dimensions variable, portrait or landscape orientation
Edition of 3
The current data landscape for Flight detects data proximity to the following airports: Istanbul (IST), London Heathrow (LHR), Los Angeles (LAX), and New York (JFK). By building a database using real time data from flightstats, e-bird, and weather.com, Flight reflects on the complex skies above our heads.
The ecologically inclusive approach of Flight continues the work in Zurkow’s Mesocosm series: animated, specific landscapes that slowly unfold, blending the “natural” and the anthropogenic, natural science and fantasy via a slow, algorithmic trajectory.
Flight currently runs on Open Frameworks as a site-specific installation.
