»Generating Utopia« is a realtime visualization of social location data, made with Processing. Its aim is to show what human habitats could look like if it was possible to transform them depending on the location-based behavior of their residents. The data was taken from various users of the social platform »Foursquare«.
These images are taken from the realtime-application which I created during the project.
