Danish designer Sebastian Campion has created The Urban Cursor project in an effort to get the public to explore the link between our physical and digital realms. Installed as part of this year’s Ingràvid Festival in Figueres, Spain, the giant cursor utilizes GPS tracking to record movements made in the real world onto a Google map. As people move it around, its corresponding trajectory is updated online. The project not only traces our connections to the online environment, but also  encourages social interaction, bringing an element of play back into our public spaces.
