We have just finished the movie storyboard “Keeploop Challenges” based on our original concept. It is a game that takes you on a tour through the microscopic world. It is based on the combination of a amazing tiny microscope for mobile phones and a locative game concept where you have to search for micro details around you. Attach the microscope to your phone, start taking pictures and post on your social network. KeepLoop Challenges is a new way to game the microscopic world.
The original music is from Richard Wormstall and the script and voice is from Kat Snow. The keeploop company is planning to start with us the programming of the iphone and ipad app around February 2013 and launch the game before 2014

We just come back from a summer trip to Grand Rapids in Michigan. We participated to the first international Big History Association meeting in August 2012 where we presented a first prototype of the Walk Through Time mobile phone app.
I would like to share in this post a overview of our presentation related to learning Big History through Locative Media and mobile phones. The Big Idea in this presentation is to help to understand very large scales of space and time by the walk. Have a look at this 12 minutes movie explanation…
A Walk Through Time, a “Walking” iphone app.
I am currently working on a mobile phone app project with Geoff Ainscow from Los Angeles. We study now a iphone app where each of your steps is one million years during a one mile walk tracing the 4,600 million year the evolution of life on earth. In 1997, at Hewlett Packard Laboratories in Palo Alto, California, the Walk Through Time exhibit was created for the opening experience of a five day meeting involving 350 scientist from around the world. Every foot of the one mile walk represents one million years of the evolution of life on Earth. 95 color, illustrative panels, describing the state of life at that time were spaced at various intervals. Starting 4,600 million years ago, at the beginning of the solar system, you walk a mile before reaching the present day and realize that the last 1/10 of an inch represents the 10,000 years of our civilization. This exhibit has been shown in many cities and continues to travel around the world. A book was published in 1998. Today, the Walk moves into the high tech age with the development of this iPhone app.

As creative designer, the most important idea around the app is that you will have to walk for real to experience the 4,600 Millons years of evolution of life on earth. Each of your steps will be detected by the accelerometer and will move you forward 1 million years. We hope to start the programming of the iphone app around October 2011.
Show Reel Walking Documentary version Beta
We are working now on the creation of 54 mini-movies for the Walk Through Time smartphone app project directed by Geoff Ainscow. A set of 2 minutes movies from the very beginning of our solar system until today. A 4600 MY visual travel through the evolution of life on earth. I a mastering After Effects CS6 to achieve visual experiments with particles, fractals and 3D cameras for this trip :)

A serie of ideas and real projects around Locative Media and Creativity. I am speaking about various projects born from the GPS Museum website and the art collective Transnational Temps. A serie of artworks mixing geolocation, activism, environment and cosmology.

Trash Alert! will be a opensource Android App dedicated to the geolocation of micro garbage dumps all around you. Please support the project on Goteo the Spanish opensource crowdfunding website.
We currently working on the GPS Museum Website, a web portal with a selection of great locative media artworks and productions. You can navigate the links through a interactive map made with the speakingimage map tool. This website is the continuation of the GPS Museum Facebook page
