Weight of the World
How has the weight of human-made mass changed over time in comparison to the earth’s biomass?
This timeline based graphic visualises the result, using a set of (what must be enourmous) scales, and delightful illustration. At key points as time progresses, important facts are brought to the fore and displayed alongside the visualisation.
Users can play the graphic through, with stops as the key facts appear, or skip along the timeline themselves.
