Locative Systems Using Mobile Phones
July-September 2008 (vol. 15 no. 3)
pp. 6-10
Jenny Weight, RMIT University
In the age of mobile media, artists interested in storytelling and place have been exploring various technologies to enable their locative media work. Jenny Weight traces the aesthetic and technical background to these works and discusses recent RMIT projects, which work with a solar powered Bluetooth server to deliver their poetic psychogeographic stories.
