With advancements in technology, musicians are finding new ways to create works of art. Recently, OK Go orchestrated a parade through downtown Los Angeles, and they had GPS devices in hand.

The band, which is renowned for its out-of-the-box dance videos, used GPS devices to spell out "OK Go" in giant letters across the city. The Range Rover Evoque iPhone application, which was used by the musicians, tracks journeys onto maps through GPS technology. The filming of the project took place in November, according to Wired magazine.

"We tracked every step of our journey through GPS to create a unique piece of collaborative, living art," OK Go member Damian Kulash told the news source. "We have danced with our hometown and want our fans to do the same."

The band led fans through Los Angeles in brightly-colored suits, in spirit of their new album, Of the Blue Colour Sky. The final video, which has only been seen in snippets, is scheduled to debut in February 2011.

Employment of artists is predicted to increase by 12 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
