Locative Media

2pm, April 30th Panel - One area that is perhaps generating the most excitement, and that has caught the imagination of a new generation of artists, programmers and DIY technologists, is the emergent field of Locative Media. Assigning data with spatial coordinates so that it can be accessed from particular points, Locative Media explores how networked mobile devices, when combined with positioning technologies such as GPS, may be used for social communication and organisation, or for artistic interventions in which geographical space becomes its canvas.
