Codebreaker

Twitter + photography = art

John Moe Sep 30, 2010

Artists Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman take location data from Twitter tweets, go to the place where the tweet originated and photograph it, and then post photo and tweet together. It’s a project called Geolocation and around this office anyway, we can’t stop looking at these. Nate’s a listener of the show and he got in touch with us to tell about this. Thanks, Nate!
