TED’s always been a showcase for great short film. Every day this week on the TED Blog, we’ll feature a short film that played live at TED; today’s is a hypnotic exploration of data called “Flight Patterns,” by Aaron Koblin. The 3-minute film uses FAA flight data to create shimmering animations of flight traffic patterns and density. Find a high-res version of this film at Aaron Koblin’s website. “Flight Patterns” screened at TED2007 in Monterey.
