Day 3 of GML Week brings us the first major update to a project that I started working on back in 2004 as part of my graduate thesis research. I have teamed up with artist and OpenFrameworks bada55 Chris Sugrue to create Graffiti Analysis 2.0. The GA2.0 software suite consists of (i) the Capture application (PC/OSX/Linux), which records graffiti tags in motion and exports them as .gml files; (ii) the Playback application (PC/OSX/Linux), which imports .gml files and creates data visualizations based on gestural graffiti movement and (iii) DustTag (the GA2.0 iPhone application), which captures graffiti tags and uploads them directly to 000000book.com, an open online database of .gml data. GA2.0 is an ongoing initiative that has been used to capture data from prominent graffiti writers including SEEN, TWIST, AMAZE, KETONE, JON ONE and KATSU, all of which can be downloaded for playback at graffitianalysis.com/tags.
GA2.0 is available online for free in an effort to build the world’s largest archive of graffiti motion data and encourage collaboration between graffiti writers (by uploading data) and hackers (by building systems which utilize that data).
A visualization of people who’ve contributed to the Barack Obama page on Wikipedia. Users who edit a lot drift toward the center. Best watched full screen in HD!
Visualized using code_swarm (Processing) and my new Wikipedia page history parser Wikiswarm (Ruby). Code and instructions on how to make your own visualizations can be found in the README or on jamiedubs.com
Music is from DJ Z-Trip’s Obama Mix.
I just finished the first major round of updates to the DeTouch project in almost two years. DeTouch is an interactive online tool that visualizes the alterations made by professional re-touch artists. This update doubles the amount of data from re-touch websites and includes downloads for full screen standalone applications in Linux, Mac, and Windows.
The brighter the pixel value the more the area has been altered:
