Locals & Tourists

Eric Fischer:

"Blue points on the map are pictures taken by locals (people who have taken pictures in this city dated over a range of a month or more).

"Red points are pictures taken by tourists (people who seem to be a local of a different city and who took pictures in this city for less than a month).

"Yellow points are pictures where it can't be determined whether or not the photographer was a tourist (because they haven't taken pictures anywhere for over a month). They are probably tourists but might just not post many pictures at all."

Data as art. Just the right balance. More cities here.

Stone Fields

Giuseppe Randazzo:

"I love the work by Richard Long, the way he fills lonely landscapes with arcaic stones patterns. My version is a poor and lazy version of that eroic approach.. The virtual stones created by several fractal subdivision strategies, find their proper position within the circle, with a trial and error hierarchical algorythm. A mix of attractors and scalar fields (some with Perlin noise) drives the density and size of the stones. The code is a C++ console application that outputs a OBJ 3d file."

Remarkable however done. (via John Pavlus)
