Visualizing change in the offset of the Earth’s axis

Visualizing change in the offset of the Earth’s axis
Visualizing change in the offset of the Earth’s axis Planetary Society member Ted Ollier sent us this artwork he created, which has the nicely explanatory title: “Change in the offset of the Earth’s axis of rotation from the geoid origin point, from the birth date of the artist through early May 2015.” Much of his artwork involves astronomical concepts, pulling data into visual abstractions that convey information as well as aesthetics. More of Ollier’s work can be found on his website. Ted Ollier
