GPS-Art is a new field of art activity based on the motion in an open space. GPS-Art is the global interactive instrument used for creation and processing of the audio and video material. It intergrates elements of audio-visual installation to be used as a new media transmission. Project is based on a large outdoor scales of cities and open spaces. Project is ready to be realized on land, air, underwater as well as in outer space.
All GPS-Art projects are using GPS-12 device (Global Positioning System), as well as cell phone system. GPS-12 describes its location calibrating position of the 12 satellites hanging above the Northern half of the globe. GPS-12 is used for navigation and measures in a interactive way many topographic parameters, among others: latitude (from 10 m through thousands of kilometers), speed and many others. All measurements are the starting point for many art projects of GPS-Art.
Since 2001 GPS-Art idea is realized by series of GPS-Trans net-cellphone performances.
