*구글 빅데이타를 이용한 테라픽셀 그래픽 [ Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram ] Terapixel Graphics

반응형


세계적인 컴퓨터 엑스포, 세빗의 하노버 페어그라운드 제 16홀을 채우는 거대한 그래픽은 구글에서 제공하는 빅테이타를 이용, 휴먼레이스의 다양한 양상을 디지털 시뮬레이션 -각 객체의 관계학-으로 이미지화 한다.

12.5 테라픽셀은 16홀 서쪽 종단면을 따라 90미터 길이로 연속되는 그래픽으로 1800년도 부터 2008년까지의 인문학을 400개이상의 주파수 파동으로 다이어그램화 한다. 정치, 경제, 공학, 과학, 기술, 수학, 철학은 40억개에 달하는 구글북스의 스캔 북을 통하여 수집된 정보로 관련 검색어는 파동에 연속된다. 6.2 테라픽셀은 5대양의 다양한 흐름을 시각화 한 것으로 바다기후의 포괄적인 동적 흐름과 해양생태환경의 시스템을 지구본의 동심원을 따라 표현한다. 그리고 6.6테라픽셀은 그 어떠한 구조보다 복잡한 인간뇌구조의 시냅스를 3차원 맵으로 시각화한다. 마지막으로 9테라픽셀은 지구에서 발생하는 다양한 진동, 파동을 지리적 테이타와 연동, 그 속에서 벌어지는 다양한 관계를 표현한다.

그렇게 빅테이타를 이용한 거대한 그래픽은 과학과 예술의 경계에서 3,000스퀘어미터 공간을 가득 메운다.

Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram have sculpted the volumetric expanse of Hall 16 of the Hannover Fairgrounds for CeBit, the world’s largest international computer expo.

A 3.000 square meter, floor-to-ceiling terapixel graphic makes manifest the largesse of Big Data, the theme of this year’s CODE_n.




Terapixel Graphics
Design: Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram


For the terapixel graphics, the designers have culled and combined data sets from a vast range of sources – from Google Lab’s annals of digitised books to the morphological paths of the human mind – to create a giant, filleted panorama that both envelopes and frees the exhibition space.

Retrospective Trending (12.5 terapixel) is a 90 meter long wall-like canopy running along the western longitudinal section of the Hall 16. The varicolored scalar field of relation human knowledge, is expressed as a horizontal expanse of over 400 lexical frequency timelines from 1800 to 2008, each generated using Google’s Ngram tool.

Using Google Book’s archive of 4 billion scanned book pages, hundreds of search terms related to ethnographic themes of politics, economics, engineering, science, technology, mathematics, and philosophy resulted in the output of monumental kaleidoscopic historical trajectories of word usage over time.

Opposite is the Hydrosphere Hyperwall, (6.2 terapixel) a visualisation of the global ocean as dynamic pathways, polychrome swathes of sea climate, data-collecting swarms of mini robots and sea animals, and plumes of narrow current systems. Sinuous lines and tassels of ever-dynamic forces are layered with a cloud of directional arrows that specify wind direction. The re-imagined surface of the earth swirls alongside an exploded perpendicular web of data vectors in form of buoys, argo floats, research ships, wave gliders, sea creatures and research stations.

Alongside the Hydrosphere Hyperwall, the ultimate complex system, the Human Brain, is manifested as a terapixel resolution Human Connectome (6.6 terapixel) morphological map. Complete with several million multi-coloured fibre bundles acquired using diffusionMRIs, structural descriptions of the human mind were generated at 40 times the scale of the human body. The comprehensive 3-D map of human neural connections collapses the Mind/Brain divide with both scale and hue. Whole brain dynamics are visualised on an ultra-macro scale as well as the infinitesimal cell-scale. The resultant population of information potentiates a range of inquiries – from degenerative tissue damage in Alzheimer’s patients to the neural basis of morality.

The Big Data Vortex (9 terapixels) demarcates the far end of Hall 16 with a curved cacophony of complexity. The immersive panorama of binary maps, gel electrophoresis tracks, overlapping sine waves and geodata is mounted on a sweeping, arciform section of tubing. Driven by a monumental increase in computing power, storage, accessibility as well as the basic human compulsion to assess quantity, the techno-cultural phenomena of data is expressed undistilled in the cinema-scaled membrane. Originally conceived as an animated graphic of an ever-accelerating vector, a still frame slice of an incredibly dense information vortex suggests an infinite macro-pattern of interlocking complex systems; a dynamic, self-generated parallel universe that both humbles and hastens human progress.
