The World From Another Point of View

worldprocessor.jpg C. Alan Joyce's earlier entry on the Worldmapper project reminded me of something similar that I'd seen. Worldprocessor (1988-2005), a project by artist Ingo Günther, is a collection of more than 300 globes that map different data.

Globes might reflect such data as "Landlocked Nations" and "Refugee Currents" (where the width of arrows indicates the relative amounts of refugees between countries). Some of his globes are more playful. "Hannover" shows places named Hanover after the German town. And, of course, what collection of globes would be complete without "Blank," literally an image of a blank globe?
