Use sand to locate yourself

20 Jan 2013

Esther Polak, Ivar van Bekkum and Bert Kommerij use sand to create temporary interactive artworks by mapping locations with sand circles.


Sandmapping - #Sandmapping at the Mediamatic Fabriek. Mediamatic Fabriek, 20 januari 2013 bert kommerij

Using a water bottle filled with sand, a rope, and a stick they make a real-life interpretation of the location service on your smart phone. DIY, tactile street graffiti: using sand to map yourself and your surroundings. By making a photo of your real-life sandmap and sharing it online, it instantly becomes part of the virtual world.
