into the real

Great concept this ‘Geolocation’ project by Nate Larson and Marni Schindelman. By using GPS data they’ve tracked the location of tweets and added a visual layer. The tweets were subjectivly chosen. Where Nate Larson favored privacy, political events or national news, Marni Schindelman favored the more dramatic and romantic tweets. Their GPS data radius was narrowed down to 15 feet so the perspective and point of view in the pictures was their decision. Cool to see this real-world they’ve created for virtual information. Really like this adding-up kind of visual-storytelling and putting sustainabilty to the fleeting medium of tweets.
