“This is NOW” rides the real-time-wave | Live Instagram Feed tunes into London / Sydney / New York / Tokyo
Remember the awesome CitySounds.fm? Hacked together by Henrik Berggren & Eric Wahlforss at a Music Hackday back in 2009, the simple and genius idea was to cluster SoundCloud tracks into City Channels, match it with pictures from Flickr and assemble all into a simple and beautiful layout. All was build in 48 hours and it even came with an iPhone app. Back in January we talked with Henrik & Eric about their love for hacks and early DJ encounters.
“This is NOW” is equally straight forward: Instagram images are grouped by cities into a live feed and dramatized with a ticking local time clock. Currently on display: London / Sydney / New York / Tokyo. The ‘Made in Sydney’ project picks up the real-time location trend and shows that simple data filters can do wonders. Berlin-based photo sharing and discovery app EyeEm started from the beginning with an album feature that let’s you easily choose different city streams - from Berlin to Buenos Aires, Copenhagen to Cape Town.
We’re looking forward to more of these real-time visualization projects to put method to the picture madness.
