For this project I created an air traffic data visualization for a custom media display at Airbus headquarters. Using an online data set, I  translated a spreadsheet of latitude and longitude coordinates and flight times into a 3D animation using Houdini. I researched and found the equation needed to convert a flat earth model from NASA into 3D cartesian space. The visualization was surprisingly accurate and shows the power not only of what can be done with real data but how data can also be beautiful.  

For another component of the installation I advised and helped design the physical structure for a projection mapping experience. I also created the pixel map templates for designers to create sympathetic animations to the sculpture and advised in the capacity of real time rendering.
