Wealth of Nations
Julius Akinyemi, Entrepreneur-In-Residence at the MIT Media Lab, commissioned DuKode to create some refined visualizations for his Unleashing the Wealth of Nations project. In these visualizations, the USA, Brazil and Nigeria are visualized as "Central Nodes" to other countries using trade volume data. Each image shows a nervous system of export, and Julius's work explores how we can shift that nervous system in a way that is more distributed throughout the globe. The USA image is shown below.
