"There was a flurry of activity in GPS-created art a few years ago. GPS Traces on OpenStreetMap, or GPS drawing, or Waag's Amsterdam RealTime project, collated on this Me-fi post, where the antecedent of forms created from urbanism in Paul Auster's New York Trilogy is noted. This was walking as exhibitionism, the inevitable dovetail of technology and showmanship, venturing forth because we could."
(things magazine, 07 January 2010)
"things magazine was originally founded in 1994 by a group of writers and historians based at the Victoria & Albert Museum/Royal College of Art in the belief that objects can open up new ways of understanding the world.
Now an independent magazine, things has built a reputation as a home for new writing - essays, reviews, short stories and poems - about objects and their meanings. The website contains a weblog, photography galleries, special projects, searchable archives and the occasional on-line only article."
