Blog posting written by Shea Lynch, Documentary Production '13, FLEFF Blogger, Glens Falls, New York

Started dérives: 881
Public dérives: 740
Cards drawn: 7863
Distance recorded: 429.415 km 

FLEFF blogging interns discuss the new urban exploration app Derive with leads Eduardo Cachucho and Babak Fakhamzadeh. The FLEFF staff team will soon be creating their own derives, exploring the much smaller environment of Ithaca.
 
The Derive app allows users to create online direction cards for exploring cityscapes; a personalized journey that allows users to publish their own mobilization through spaces. Derives have been created in Biella, New York City, Paris, San Francisco, and more; collaborative new media projects that brings people together.
 
Listen to different air conditioner sounds around you. Observe something Egyptian. Find a window cleaner at work, try to catch some refreshing water spray below. Go east. 
 
Cachucho and Fakhamzadeh created this app in order to create a new way of human communication with urban jungles and new technologies, bringing hand-on workshop explorations done in Abu Dhabi in February 2013 to users around the world. You can login with Facebook and start creating Derives now!
 
Stay tuned for more FLEFF Derive updates!
 
How do you explore Ithaca?

I'm so excited to start doing dérives around Ithaca. There are so many unique aspects of Ithaca as a community, it'll be interesting to see how the dual themes are explored.
