Digital prints, (2012)

Mobility Policies is a series of visualisations that explore the relationships among temporal perception, physical mobility and international affairs. Data has been 
gathered by parsing Wikipedia pages with the URL format

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visa_requirements_for_
[citisenship]_citizens

The data gathered includes visa-free travel destinations of nationals 
from 142 countries/territories as well as respective times of stay. In the visualisations the RGB spectrum has been manipulated to vary according to differences in days of stay across nationalities and territories. Tendency towards the red side of the spectrum indicates unfavourable/unequal policies while tendency to the green/blue side indicates favourable/equal policies. Colour saturation represents strength of relations, and circle sizes the area of the different countries.
