Arrivals

Arrivals

"Arrivals" was concieved on a day at the beach (as most good ideas). Looking out at the sea at Amager Beach in Copenhagen, Denmark, one can't help noticing the planes approaching before landing at the city's airport.Like a cultural breath of fresh air, each plane brings a myriad of beliefs, ways, colours and sounds. In this way each landing plane represents the gift of life and cultural diversity given to the city, the host."Arrivals" is an attempt to visualize these 'gifts from abroad' which are so generously handed to us every 8. or so minute.Concept and programming by Speedazuk - a digital art and design community by Tess Gaston & Leif Løvgreen
*The flight data (from which city did the next plane in CPH airport depart) used in this version is handcrafted data. A version exists with live data feed from FligthStats.
