Visual Journeys

A new film entitled Anthropocene uses data visualization to tell on visually-rich story about the way the population has lived and travelled for the past 250 years. It is the result of the astounding dedication of Canadian anthropologist Felix Pharand, who spent 13 years inputting every flight path, road and shipping route on earth. The beauty of the imagery is contrasted by the narration which aims to illuminate the environmental impact that our increased expedition has had.
