Metro is Chris Coleman's every day commute on the Denver Light Rail, recorded using a handheld 3D scanning device and a laptop. The fragmentation and gaps in the data are defined by the physical bumps, speed, and curves in the journeys affecting Chris' hand while scanning.
Sometimes enveloping and sometimes sparse and shattered, time produces forward motion and simplification.

In late February 2016, a group of openFrameworks users and educators gathered in Denver Colorado to work on improving the ways people learn and use openFrameworks (OF). They worked intensely for 3.5 days, 12 hours per day, collectively committing more than 800 people-hours to creating and improving openFrameworks learning resources to help students around the world learn how to create with this powerful digital arts and design tool.
