Semantic Typography

A visual interpretation of a transcript using semantic typography from a black box recording of Comair flight 5191. The transcript takes the form of a boarding pass, a map of the accident area, a paper plane with a witness report and baggage/mortuary tags of the dead captain, air steward and co-pilot all contained in the black box. Every second from the last twenty minutes of these peoples lives is recorded in this transcript. As you read through the pages black shapes ominously encroach upon their words until eventually they cease to exist and time keeps moving on without them.
