Air Travel on the Brain

November 21st, 2007

On the evening of the Thanksgiving holiday, here is a gorgeous visualization of air travel across the US, compiled by a graphic artist named Aaron Koblin. I’m a sucker for stuff like this. The static views are beautiful, but the time lapse version is mesmerizing.

  • This is very cool. I watched the video-version while listening to “accidents will happen” by elvis costello. Somehow apropos.

    Am I the only one who thinks there’s more coverage than ever about holiday travel this year? Or maybe I think that because I’m not traveling so am around to see/hear it all.

    Happy holidays Parkhills and everyone else.
