So I went and watched the Olympic Torch leave Plymouth today and captured the moment it went along Coburg street

Craftivism videos

So after over 2 years, I’ve finally put my videos up from the Craftivism exhibition that I was a part of here. Enjoy :)

Week 15

For this visualisation I’ve taken the literal translation of the feed. There’s a site in the States that provides a feed of GPS data on various routes throughout the country. I decided to use the data for the LA Metro route for no other reason than it seems to have the most amount of data and is updated fairly regularly. So, I extract the GPS coordinates along with the heading and every 4 seconds show the potential view that the bus driver will see……assuming that he happened to be at that point the same time as the Google Streetview car was :)

Week 14

This week I’m using another i-DAT feed. This is from the Eco-OS project. The feed consists of data from ecoids installed around north devon. I’m using a humidity reading from one of them with multi-coloured drops to visualise the moisture in the air. The smaller the reading, the less drops there are.

Week 13

So for a change I’ve gone back to using the Arch-OS feed, this time taking the current wind speed. I read an article on how if you draw a line perpendicular from the midpoint of each of the sides of a pentagon, you get 6 sub pentagons. The article had a really nice tutorial for displaying this. I took it one step further and added some animation.

Week 12

This is something I had running on the GreenScreen for a while and is a visualisation of the Arch-OS feed (www.arch-os.com/livedata/). The sketch reads the feed and uses the values to change the colours. If you click and hold the mouse down you will see the negative version……which i happen to think looks quite nice :)
