The sculptures are comprised of a series of arcs on a flat plate. Each layer represents one play, the arc’s size determined by the distance the ball traveled during that play. Each team is assigned one side of the sculpture, and the kickoff is represented by the arc at the very front.
Data from all 50 Super Bowl games visualized in 3D
As a result, the sculptures take on a rhythmic, wave-like quality when viewed from above, tracing the path of the ball back and forth across the field. The dynamic sculptures take around five days to print, as seen in the timelapse video below.

You might have spent yesterday nursing your Super Bowl party hangover, but one artist duo spent their Monday more productively: visualizing and 3D printing data from the game into a sculpture.
It’s the latest addition to the series VERSUS 0.02 [gridiron], by media artists and professors Margarita Benitez and Markus Vogl. The artists have 3D printed sculptures using data from every Super Bowl game ever, using a method of transmuting yards traveled into geometric arcs.
