Trails from the Trails

TRAXXS is a data visualization project by Virtualpolitik pal Matt Elson that combines "digital imaging, GPS positioning recording, 3-D terrain mapping, and artistic computer software." Inspired by his experiences as a painter, skier, and digital artist, Elson's work for the 2010 Winter Olympics in conjunction with Alpine events in Whistler, Canada uses tracking information gathered from mountain bikers in a project that repurposes the data as brushstrokes.
