This 12" x 12" x 12" acrylic model is a 3d representation of cargo flights arriving and departing the FedEx Superhub at Memphis International Airport, Tennessee over a 24 hour period in February 2010. It is constructed from an earlier drawing by myself of the same data, developed as a 3d Rhino model and sliced to fabricate 96 acrylic sheets that are laser cut and clamped together to make the final product.
