Taxi, Taxi!

Taxi, Taxi! is a digital installation featured on the 3-story display housed within Samsung 837, the new Samsung Experience Center located in Manhattan.

This project was created in collaboration with Jonathan Kim with invaluable help from Ryan Bartley. Taxi, Taxi! is 1 of 4 different pieces we created exclusively for the towering video wall. It uses NYC Open Data taxi data plotted against routes created with Open Street Map which is displayed within a 3D model of New York City. It is designed to run in realtime and was created with the Cinder C++ coding framework.

Special thanks to The Guild, both for hiring us in the first place but also for giving us incredible creative freedom. It was an amazing opportunity to realize our ideas on such a grand scale.
