Objects and traces in space: connecting locative media with contemporary art

Objects and traces in space: connecting locative media with contemporary art New media technologies related with location (GPS, wireless networks, etc.) are becoming an interesting interface to explore the relationship between objects and space. Emerging art practices coined with the term ‘locative media’ engage precisely with such technologies and bring to light some debate on the conception of materiality and space, thus fostering new ways of space exploration and experience. This paper aims to contribute to the theorisation of locative media through bridging different humanistic perspectives that include: new media, contemporary art, and social science theories. The main subjects of discussion are, on the one hand, the notions of objectuality and materiality, and on the other, the notions of space and place. I will relate such theories with locative media art projects, ending with the case studies of Canal Accessible (2006) and Bio Mapping (2004), and suggesting that locative media could aid in the social transformation of space. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Arts and Technology Inderscience Publishers

Abstract

New media technologies related with location (GPS, wireless networks, etc.) are becoming an interesting interface to explore the relationship between objects and space. Emerging art practices coined with the term ‘locative media’ engage precisely with such technologies and bring to light some debate on the conception of materiality and space, thus fostering new ways of space exploration and experience. This paper aims to contribute to the theorisation of locative media through bridging different humanistic perspectives that include: new media, contemporary art, and social science theories. The main subjects of discussion are, on the one hand, the notions of objectuality and materiality, and on the other, the notions of space and place. I will relate such theories with locative media art projects, ending with the case studies of Canal Accessible (2006) and Bio Mapping (2004), and suggesting that locative media could aid in the social transformation of space.
