Intimate disavowal: turning away from technological media art

Conference Paper


Download full-text (Open Access)

Abstract


  • This paper describes a personal turn away from

    technological media art towards modes of practice

    that involve walking based interaction with the local

    environment. However, rather than stressing areas

    of difference, I consider points of unexpected

    continuity. The key association hinges on a

    common concern with dimensions of mediation.

    Within this context, I argue for a broader

    conception of mediation that is not restricted to

    technological media, but that can also incorporate

    our complex relation to aspects of lived immediacy.
