1000 Years - Simulation (w/ Mark J. Stock)

This massive display combines the flow and accumulation concepts presented in earlier works of the series. The surface and deep flow dynamics of "1000 Years - Tubes" were rendered as a 60-sec simulation, and the concept of accumulation presented in "1000 Years - Core" was integrated into the flow via a single point source.

1000 Years - Tubes and Core

This is 1000 years - long, wet, salty and stinky, and sealed-up in 1.52m borosilicate tubes. One tube depicts the Meridional Overturning Circulation full of wet, salty and stinky flowing poop, and the other a layered collection of wet, salty and stinky poop at a single location.
