Breath in, breath out.
Using Hugin to stitch some photos of MIT from Prudential tower in Boston.
It took two weeks to publish them, but after another snowy weekend, I had to publish the photos of the quiet city after the storm (no cars, just people shoveling and walking on the streets).
I could have also said: “All the places I went last year”, but it would not be that accurate. Instead of yuxtaposing the raw gpx tracks, I found that giving them a transparency they would tell the story better. The black spot is the consequence of not turning on the GPS in closed spaces (noise).
Note: It might be a little bit to intimate to show all this traces, but it looked so nice that I had to post it. Years ago I did a similar map drawing with a pilot every movement I made on a Madrid touristic paper map. I never published it. Different tools, same story.
“…where we can be heard, where we can be seen, and where we can occupy. Harvard as I said, has been occupied before, (…), we occupied where Harvard has been complicit in Apertheid in South Africa (…) living wage. (…) We must occupy again, because Harvard employs the very people who were responsible of the global economic metdown and the political institutions that facilitate it, that have created the suffering that engulfs not only this nation but the globe a a whole. Harvard is complicit (…) Harvard has economists that teach us that profits are more important that people. And we are here tonight to say that this is more important than war, to say that people are more imporant than profits, and to say that the majority is right and the minority at this hour in history. The 1% is scared because the 99% is globalized. We are 99% percent, and it is time to take back this world. Peace”.
