an impressive planetarium artwork visualizing the aerial technologies (e.g. planes, satellites, weather balloons, space debris, etc.) hovering, flying, & drifting above us. this project combines science, statistical display, & contemporary art by interpreting the mechanical patterns of these systems as 'culturally significant poetics'. with help from government agencies & science community, the artists worked with tracking & protocol statistics to create 3D models of the airborne systems. a team of animators visualized those models in a style that reflects the chaos, force, & influence of these technologies.
