urban cursor

the urban cursor project by danish designer sebastian campion uses GPS tracking to record the movements of a giant 3-d computer cursor. the project was created for the festival ingràvid in figueres, spain. the giant cursor was installed in a city square allowing visitors to move it around on its large castors. the object was embedded with GPS device that transmitted its movements so that its location could be tracked using google maps. users were encouraged to move the object around and use it to sit on or play with. later, these same visitors could check the website to see how they moved the cursor. the aim of the piece was ‘to facilitate social interaction and play in public space.’
