Frickdits — the free iPhone app created by Austin artist Laurie Frick —  is now live and free via www.FrickBits.com or the App Store.

Frickbits tracks a user’s location data and draws patterns of where you’ve traveled with colorful cubes derived from Frick’s watercolor drawings.

Frickbits utilizes the most basic of today’s data-collecting: the location data gathered by the Apple iPhone operating system

“It’s already happening, whether you realize how much your data is collected or not,” says a self-described data artist. “Why not take control of it? And create art from it?”
