Planes compresses the flight trajectories of all incoming and outgoing planes of an airport in one day. In post-production the individual frames are overlaid to condense time and visualize the linear motion traces of the programmed landing and taking-off of aircraft. The video follows the dramaturgy of the day which is defined by the changing wind directions and flight trajectories, as well as major traffic time-based patterns.
