Eye Candy: Air Lines

S-WN

I don’t really have much to say about this, other than I think it’s pretty dope [and kind of want a copy]. Entitled ‘Air Lines‘, the work maps flight paths from the world’s major airports – creating an impressive map of the world in the process.

Air Lines is an art project showing worldwide airliner routes. Every single scheduled flight on any given day is reresented by a fine line from it’s point of origin to it’s port of destination. Thereby forming a net of thousands of lines. Hubs like JFK, FRA or DXB turn into dark knots where lines meet, lesser served local services are only are a subtle hint.

Prints are available for $39 [with an outrageous $19.99 shipping fee], both black on white, and white on black [the white on black is a limited edition of 100, however].
