About The Prints

Still visualizations of wind map are captured by the artists from real-time data and exported at the highest possible resolution. Interpolation algorithms are used in order to preserve the original lineforms. The images are then reproduced at true 2880 resolution as museum quality giclée art prints. Each print is accompanied by a card signed and numbered by the artists.
