One of two experimental results from “mistakes” in code written to read and display GPS data from multiple walks around a city; the 'mistake' led to a good visual result. Part of a larger project with Gareth Howell using GPS data as a pilot for mapping human movement.

The hacky use of the blur filter in Processing makes this too slow and processor-intensive for more than a demo.

Source code (circa 2009). Built with Processing.
