The FAA visualised
I don't know if it's art - but it's defo creative - and in a way mesmerising and beautiful all at the same time.

http://users.design.ucla.edu/~akobli...faa/index.html

Reminds me of Wargames - ubercool 80's cold war flick for all you uneducated neo-geek types.

Kind of chilling in a sense in a post 9-11 world - recognising that planes have been used as missiles.

Release the politics and enjoy the data flow.

Reminds me of my childhood: my father used to be an air traffic controller at LAX.

Re: The FAA visualised
really gorgeous
yep, that most definitely falls under the conceptual/contemporary category. very inspiring stuff, my sister's gallery is a huge advocate for digital art as well as traditional media in that style.

shameless plug

Re: The FAA visualised
Super sweet! I'm a bigger dork about aviation than I am about Underworld. Plus I'll be an air traffic controller in Chicago within a year (if the FAA ever gets their shit lined up... but that's a whole other story) and currently teach ATC at a major Aeronautical University. I'll be sure to pass this along to all my students and colleagues... if I can get the damn things to load on my University-issue craptop.

edit: Firefox worked. Yay.

Re: The FAA visualised
More coolness here. Images only.

The low earth orbit image blows my mind, just a little, and the link about satellites, which gives details about all of the orbiting bodies we've stuck up there - is just amazing.

Re: The FAA visualised
maybe I should have called this data visualised.

Same map - but with google traffic visualised over the course of 24 hours.

From Nat Torkington's blog.

I like how it almost beats like a heart - you can't see the earth revolving - but it's like the sun passing across the face - and the planet beating. Some places just burn 24/7 though.

You should check out DEFCON, a game inspired by that movie.

That is a really cool image. The heart beating analogy is great.

change good luck with the air traffic controller in Chicago. I hope you're at Midway instead of O'hare.
