Situated on the Copenhagen harbour front, BLOX serves as a vibrant hub for architecture, design, and sustainable urban development. Yoke was invited to conceive an interactive installation that would vividly present Copenhagen's traffic data, spanning back to 1970, showcasing its evolution over time.
The goal was to convey the organic nature of traffic as it courses through the city's seemingly static infrastructure. The resulting visualization takes the form of a dynamic swarm of particles. From afar, these particles create a sense of perpetual motion, resembling a living organism thriving amidst an ever-changing landscape of data. Upon approaching the installation, the visitor will experience how the swarms of data gradually stretch out onto a detailed map of Copenhagen, artfully displaying the traffic flows through the various years.
The BLOX Wall extends an invitation to interact with big data, artfully blurring the lines between human, city, and data. It provides valuable insights and engages and captivates visitors, making the experience both informative and poetic. In other words, the BLOX Wall stands as a testament to the creative potential of data visualisation, where intricate datasets can be elegantly showcased, enticing audiences to explore and appreciate the hidden beauty within the realm of big data.
