Digital Run

Digital Art Run Project Information

On June 10th, the opening day of FOLDA (Festival of Live Digital Art), participants across Canada and beyond connected through Strava to virtually track their run or walk and had their activity data used as the foundation of the creation of new digital art.

Two Digital Artists will use the Activity Day data to create original work. Their work is below along with all of the participants of the project.

Title: Distance, Elevation, Pace
Artist: Dekel Chui

This series was inspired by the feeling of running free. The runs where I choose my own adventure on the fly. Going far/near, high/low, or fast/slow. I’ll think about it as I go. I looked at the data, connected the dots, and filled in the shapes. It’s all seriously fun.

Title: Follow Me
Artist: Enna Kim

This piece explores the geographical locations captured during Wednesday’s run, connecting runners globally from different parts of the world. The locations are highlighted in orange orbs, while the pink and blue lines connect the dots. I abstracted the world map through shades of blue, representing the dynamic runs collected on June 10th. Follow Me is a celebration of how running can be shared from all ends of the globe. 

Title: Runner’s Weave
Artist: Steve Shaddick
Medium: 3 minute software-generated loop (keep watching the anticipation builds within the first 15 seconds!)

When thinking about this project, I kept coming back to the “similar but separate” aspect, with so many people performing a similar action during a similar timeframe but separate from everyone else. I wanted the resulting piece to then bring the actions together in some unifying manner, ensuring that individual efforts were identifiable according to what they were, while maintaining a certain abstraction to help blend them together. Each bar is a single participant, where width is related to how long they ran/walked, length is their overall distance, animated speed is their pace, all arranged positionally around the screen as if the screen was an analogue clock. The result reminds me of a quilt, a virtual patchwork that only exists because people shared an activity at the same time.
