Extruded traces


An offshoot of my work with Sharon Kelly we repeated a similar process of collecting data from the act of running and using it as a starting point for visual art. This time I gave a GPS sensor and wiimote to the children at Crossmaglen primary school and instructed them to run their energies off. When we got back to the class room we had a go at interpreting the data both in code, with shapes extruded from their motion, and with stop motion animation.

You can read more about the day on the kidsown artist’s blog. Some of the children’s work from the day was later shown as part of the virtually there exhibition.
