Artist's Description

In short: Each New York cab journey is a single line, from pick-up to drop-off as the crow flies.

This image is a simple geographic representation of all pick-up and drop-offs of each taxi-journey in NYC at the beginning of 2015. Each journey is added to the image as a straight line between the two points and summed. The color-scale is designed to provide contrast while showing the movement as one interlinked object, removing the familiar geographic structures. The only region that still retains its street-like appearance is an almost ghost-like Manhattan, which aids the viewer in identification and gives an overall frame of reference.

These images are obviously deliberately pixelated. You may be worried about some minor issues as it is re-scaled from the original high-res image. I’ve checked each image at each resolution that will be available and the effects are minimal!

Enjoy!
