See FreqOUT! GPS Drawings online

Artist Jeremy Wood led several FreqOUT! workshops in 2005 along with his co-collaborator Hugh Pryor at Churchill Gardens Youth Club in Pimlico, Westminster.

Jeremy has recently published the animations showing the routes taken by the young people holding gps receivers around Battersea Park and Churchill Gardens Estate. You can see an animation of the tracks above, including superimpositions of the track onto maps of the ares and more on his web site at... with shots of the ICA showcase.

Joining in with this experience allowed the young people to gain some knowlege of satellite technology - including triangulation and how their mobile phones work; local geography, applications of GPS technology such as The City of Westminster Council's rubbish truck tracking and encoraged the participants to be creative on a really large scale!
