Spice Odyssey by Mirna Aprilla

A timeline of five centuries of global Spice Trade that follows the journey of cloves and nutmegs from their source of origins in Indonesia throughout the world, while unfolding the historical milestones that happened along their path. This project explores how history and time are visualised by using chronology as the distillations of complex historical narrations. The visualisation shows the historical impact the Spice Trade has towards the launch of globalisation that we are still experiencing nowadays.
