A mountain in your hand, decades in 10cm, a generation's peak reaching a pinky finger's tip, these miniatures construct landscapes from data sets. Reframing the larger data sets used in 'X' Mapping, these miniatures detailed gradients layer clay and oxide in a similar manner.
How might we understand our climate data if it could fit in our palms? Neatly packaged in an aesthetic landscape, is the information more legible to you here than on the ECB's website?
