The Big Apple has just become even bigger for Apple users. Pastiche allows Mac users to recreate New York through keywords on NY-centric blog searches. The result is disorientatingly stunning. See it in action below.
Conceptually, Pastiche is a parallel experience of the city, a map that not only documents, but also suggests action. It is a public counterpart to the private physical architecture of the city. Its source an aggregate of individual blogs, Pastiche is a system that anyone has the ability to contribute to. It defines a new kind of public space, while both proposing an experience and inviting comparison-in the process of relating one's own perspective to a larger collective subjectivity, one situates oneself in relation to an impromptu community, formed around the idea of New York.
Mac users can download Pastiche and explore the city themselves here.
