METRO Re/De-construction.

[VIDEO] By Chris Coleman.
A different vision of a journey inside a train a-going, through different cars and train stations distorting the spaces and even moving due to layout the railway line. It is an abstract representation of the artist based on his daily journey in Denver.

METRO is a journey, beginning outside and moving inwards. Sometimes enveloping and sometimes sparse and shattered, time produces forward motion and simplification. It is documentation of a physical space, captured millimeter accurate coordinates, colors and varied textures. Several real journeys have been digitally...

metalocus, INÉS LALUETA.
Broad patches of purple or dark areas coincide with a lesser amount of photographs, the red areas have more while smaller clusters of yellow areas have a large number of photos geotagged revealing the locations where people can't seem to put their cameras down. Unsurprisingly, the densest areas of yellow are the world's most popular tourist spots − including New York City and cities across Europe such as Barcelona or Istanbul.
