Landscape and Media

Andy Goldsworthy


Emerging technologies such as wireless network, locative media, and pervasive computing have brought about new perceptions and social interactions in urban environment, transforming the ways we experience our cities. The concepts of space, time, and social relationship in urban environment are put in flux, while there are growing interests among communities of artists viewing city as social playground, public space, fluid canvas, and invisible layers of network.

However the urban environment is not the only available location for media.
Rural, seascapes etc etc can all be utilized to express and research the
possibilities of Installed locative media.


To conceptually explore the possibilities of site specific locative media.
To enable a connection between the environment and location.

This could be through telepresence or physically engaging and interacting through a device of your construction with the environment.
