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.
