GPS Erasure (The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea) creates a data animation by collating latitude and longitude coordinates via GPS technology. Using a portable GPS receiver, Knaub recorded his own journeys through Kensington & Chelsea's geographical borders and the resulting patterns of movement were added to daily and regularly updated through the Internet.
This procedural mapping initially makes visible the Borough's nexus of streets, paths and squares, only to then progressively obliterate the individual journeys as they merge with one another and ultimately fragments and questions the Borough's geographical border and shape.
The work was specially commissioned for the ARCADE Project.
