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.
