Google Maps Traffic Jam

Artist Simon Weck­ert gen­er­ates poi­son data by trans­port­ing 99 sec­ond hand smart­phones in a hand­cart and gen­er­ates a vir­tu­al traf­fic jam in Google Maps. Through this activ­i­ty he shows that it is pos­si­ble to turn a green street red. This in turn has an impact in the phys­i­cal world by nav­i­gat­ing cars on anoth­er route to avoid being stuck in traf­fic. Simon U Rock!
