Nomadic Shopping

A locative media project by Esther Polak:
World premiere of GPS track docu-fiction

Esther Polak used a new innovative GPS-functionality to tell a poetic story: a GPS docu-fiction, central theme being the The Opzeeland Dairy Route by night.


Place: The Waarder Polder, an industrial area in East–Haarlem, Netherlands
Space: The daily route of the mobile Dairy Shop Van Opzeeland


To create a double image of space and place, Esther Polak used the "mashup website" VeoGeo.com. The website combines images of GPS registrations with YouTube route-footage.

Combined and synchronized, tracks and video's can be followed step by step resulting in an extremely realistic experience of armchair traveling.

Veogeo went offline; luckily "Nomadic Shopping" can still be seen as a movie.

Esther Polak is best known from her earlier prize winning GPS projects like AmsterdamREALTIME and MILKproject
