[Research] Vodafone's receiver new release
Receiver no. 10. Two cool papers from Ben Russel and Anne Galloway. Ben discusses the social qualities of locative communicatio and Anne asks herself what the design of mobile and ubiquitous technologies can teach us about emerging relations in urban space and culture.Quotes from Anne's paper:
The consumption of mobile phones is connected to identity – or how people, places and goods simultaneously become interconnected and differentiated. For example, in worlds where a telephone number indicates a certain stability and reliability, mobile phones allow homeless people a sense of permanent connection.
