Artist Statement:


    A Planetary Order is a terrestrial globe showing clouds from one single moment in time: precisely 0600 UTC on 2 February 2009. It is a physical visualisation of real-time scientific data. The shimmering white cloud globe freeze-frames the entire operation of the global atmospheric regime, and subtly highlights how fragile the environmental (and informational) systems are.
