Well that took a while!
Following the workshop in February I finally got around to laying up the images and text into the Drawing With Satellites #3 book.

During a very cold and grey winter, 104 second year architecture students worked in teams to draw the city with a GPS device. No longer do I have to hand them a borrowed instrument from the School of Geosciences that struggles to connect over USB. This years generation of student carries a GPS enabled iPhone or Android device that is able to store tracks and email them to me for cleaning up.
Just as last year, and the year before, the students were briefed during an introductory lecture before getting themselves into groups to develop a conceptual starting point for a drawing. Once they had found a method that would articulate this concept they moved into the street to carry out the drawing.
This years range of drawings sustain the enquiry into representing the city through gaming, geometric forms and code. As ever there are some nice surprises as the students explore the problems of being inside with a GPS instrument and what it means to use the same device to talk to connect to friends in far away places as well as recording walking trails.
