Beautiful animation created by Globaïa for the short film ‘Welcome to the Anthropocene’, a commission for the Planet Under Pressure conference. Showing every road, flight path and shipping route in the world you know from the start its going to be pretty spectacular. Watching the rotating globe is strangely hypnotic, but my favourite part of the video is when they remove the earth to show an ‘elastic band ball’ of our travel paths. Although I do find it very similar to the BBC’s ‘Every Death On Every Road’ project (which you can see here), as it’s gone a step further I can overlook that…
