Lines of Flight: Where Lies the Continent

 Aaron Koblin’s animation of flight patterns over the United States, unearths them, and then re-earths them. Found over at Immanence.

Our picturalization of data works as a kind of archaeological dig, a brushing away of layers so as to find a buried artifact of some surviving structure with allows us to re-piece the entity of what is/was there. It floats up from the dust of what is inconsequential to our project, that which wombs it, saving it for our eyes. And it stands there, as we, with our armatronic selves, outfitted by our extensions, reach out and grasp it, and all that lies beneath. How the geography, the continental shelves of such quiet surpass, echo up into these ephemera.

    Byssaceous. Watching this, I was reminded of your drawings.

    I can see this. Lines of force and travel that help determine objects, and objects (geographies) that help determine lines of force.
