Population globe

Population globe is a project for ‘Digital Sculpture 1: 3D modelling for sculpture’ course at Aalto University. I wanted to take some real life data and print it in a tacit form.

I used population data by UN. I wrote a Pyhton script in Blender to map the population data to mountains representing the county’s population.

I also used the UN global migration data to map the movement of people between countries. This hasn’t been printed out yet.

Here’s a few shots about the test print.
