Walking Through The Screen. Digital Media on The Go

Willim, Robert LU (2007) In Preprint without journal information
Abstract
How can locomotion be combined with the use of screen based digital devices? This paper deals with the ways that GPS (Global Positioning System) is integrated with the mundane practices of wayfinding and moving on foot. I’ve mainly studied how handheld GPS-devices are used by so called geo-cachers. The paper focus on ideas about cognition, spatial awareness and locomotion, and discuss how complex technological systems may slip in and out of the inconspicuous backdrop of everyday

life.
