The street finds its own uses for technology...

First there was geocaching, now there's GPS drawing. And this is a truly virtual art form - for, while the artist may make the journey, the drawing itself is captured and held in GPS mapping software.

Only visible in the virtual light of a compter screen, GPS art images can be enormous figures that criss cross a landscape (like the world's biggest IF), or simple post-modern tracings of real world objects (like the Uffington White Horse or the geometric swathes of Greenwich Park).
