Charming PSA for public transit from New York’s MTA.
James Gulliver Hancock offers an intimate look at his wonderful illustration project, All the Buildings in New York.
Tweets sent by the same person within a 4 hour time-window were used as samples of speed and direction. These samples were used to construct a vector field representing the average flow of people within the area. The vector field and total tweet density over the space were then used to simulate the movement of people. Particles, representing people, were released at locations where actual tweets were recorded and their subsequent movement was determined by the flow field. The particles start out blue and gradually change through purple to red over time so each trace shows the direction of movement. Locations where there is little movement will have blue dots or very short blue traces. Longer traces with more red show a greater speed at that point.
Movement in Manhattan based on tweets. Complement with some deliciously analog, subjective, hand-drawn maps of Manhattan.
It is the other ordinary buildings, spilling with hectic daily life, that hold real New York life and passion.
Australian illustrator James Gulliver Hancock has set out to draw all the buildings in New York.
Yoko Ono’s Manhattan
Malcolm Gladwell’s hand-drawn Manhattan
Neil deGrasse Tyson’s hand-drawn love letter to Manhattanhenge.
In which a brilliant feminist Senator – New York’s Kirsten Gillibrand – stands up against rape and schools a U. S. General on how to do his job.
As we know, thousands of rapes are reported in the military each year, manifold more go unreported, and a female soldier in a combat zone is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire.
