About the Project:

  • Role: Developer, Designer, Digital Producer, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco
  • Technology: Webapp

Richard Diebenkorn's art and practice was deeply rooted in his experience of the Bay Area. During the exhibition we asked museum visitors to virtually map their Bay Area inspired Instagram photos with: #DiebenkornBlue, #BerkeleyOnMyMind, #AerialView, and #LandSeaSky. It was a fun experiment linking a Bay-Area themed exhibition to local audience creativity outside the museum walls.

 


How I built it

I built a simple webapp that collected the tagged Instagram image with GPS information. I then put them into a custom map overlay using google map JavaScript api.
