Locative media project City Drawings turns cities into canvases, using car, mobile phone, and open source tracking systems. This project is about tracks we leave, routes we take, possibility and limitations of making a drawing in the urban realm, incorporating a new media. It is an alternative way of revealing the structures of the cities, their physical and wireless connectivity. Project City Drawings started in New York, USA in 2009. In 2010 the first foreign drawing was made in Perth, Western Australia, followed by drawing in Ekaterinburg, Russia. The ultimate goal of project City Drawings is to make drawings in 59 cities around the globe (first come first served).
