Drawinglife, the openFrameworks GPS visualisation application, open sourced

Three years after having that initial conversation about our work with Peter at an openFrameworks workshop, he has opensourced the visualisation animation application on github here.

What started out as an application to simply animate our GPS tracks (as used by us in Narrating Our Lines) has turned into a multi-purpose programme, which we have also used in the pieces in which we re-trace our GPS tracks as well as in the participatory works we have made in Birmingham and Leuven, bringing together and visualising a large number of individuals’ GPS tracks.

Thank you Peter, thank you openFrameworks and while we’re at it, thank you Richard Stallman, Linus Torvalds, my Mum, my Dad, Soph, Ruby etc…
