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!
We have already been part of several events where we performed with earlier versions of our platform. For the past two years we have developed the technology further to build a more stable version. We're able to broadcast OSC signals over websockets, driving a multitude of tools and technologies all at once, from Traktor or Ableton to DMX lightning setups to lasercutters and other connected devices if need be.
