Passengers is a continuing series of works interpolating and visualising the effect of the COVID pandemic using official passenger data across some of the World's busiest airports. The Berlin edition consumes the passenger traffic across all Berlin airports from 2019 to 2021, algorithmically creating a structure made of flesh and metal showing the silence born from the effects of the pandemic which punctuated the normally busy gateways to the city.
