Architecture of Mundane Routines

Here’s me playing around with GPS and cell tower data collected on my phone. I spent twenty days working from home and locally in Archway, North London, then imported my location data from my phone into Google Earth. In the film, each day is presented as a different contour elevation. I’ve either frozen 20 days of local flâneury or accelerated 20 days of nursery drop-offs, shopping and mooching into 2 minutes. Or neither. You decide.

Considering that our phone apps are leaking geodata most of the time, I just wanted to see what an accrued body of this stuff might look like.
