Anthony Vanky (e15) – DesCours 2011 – Flight Attentive

This installation, presented for the 2011 DesCours event in New Orleans, is described in the designers words as below:

This project seeks to make evident the network of air travel in architectural space, allowing one to observe the tracks from Louis Armstrong Airport.  By using FAA real-time data, the flight activities of the previous 24 hours are condensed into an evening and rendered through an actuated field of airplanes.  Locally, the movements of visitors initiate other playful tracking games within the space of the installation.
