In Local Positioning System I explored urban areas on foot and displayed the results of my explorations in the Dutzi gallery. My primary impetus for this project was to gain a more complete understanding of my surroundings. In a Global Positioning System (GPS)-driven re-imagining of British artist Richard Long's walks, I tracked my wanderings using a smartphone and filtered the resulting data and imagery through mechanical methods of production such as laser cutting and screen-printing. I then incorporated this imagery into a much larger installation piece that led viewers through a scale model of my exploration, via a detailed path on the wall and illuminated light boxes on the floor to guide their path.
