I ended up in the archipelago of Stockholm for Midsummer, but stuck around for a few days after. The weather initially wasn't that good but the sun took over, and it ended up being amazing. I was staying at Henrik's place, and the views from there were impressive, you could look over the whole city.
I'm glad to be back in Amsterdam, as part of The Kennedys Collective. It's an apprenticeship position which will last over the next 7 months. Together with 6 others, I'll be working on a wide variety of projects and producing them under the umbrella of Wieden & Kennedy Amsterdam.
This is a quick experimentation of a GPS track visualisation done in Processing. The data is pulled from the Moves App, which was running in the background on my iPhone from the 7th of July until 23 November 2013. Much thanks to Nicholas Felton, who provided the original code.
Over the course of the months you can really see the frequent commute over the Manhattan Bridge, and the adventures across Manhattan and Brooklyn. It also corresponds perfectly with my photomap on Instagram and Foursquare check-ins. Combining that would be next!
