DORODESIGN LIKES: GPS drawing on bike by Michael Wallace

Like a bee doing a waggle dance to signal a field full of pollen, or a cat rubbing up against a fence post to make a scent chart of its territory, GPS artist Michael Wallace maps out a virtual Baltimore during his bike trips around the city.

Using a global positioning system tracking application on his cellphone, the 40-year-old Baltimorean “sketches” elaborate scenes that are superimposed on maps of city streets.
