Locative Media for Earthlings for a Changing World
Updated: Jan 13, 2021
Between the 2nd-16th July 2020, thirty-six participants from around the world attended our online summer school. This course was designed and run by an interdisciplinary team of academics and artists (Geert Vermeire, Fred Adam, Cristina Kiminami and Mike Duggan)
The school was organised around a group activity whereby participants were tasked with designing and remotely creating a locative media artwork with a mobile/desktop locative media software, called CGeomap.
Participants were asked to create locative media projects that addressed the four key themes of the school; place, (im)mobility, climate change and COVID-19, by combing site specific stories, texts, images and sounds on an interactive online map. This activity ran for the duration of the course and was supplemented by online guest lectures, group seminars and social gatherings held through video conferencing platforms. More information about the school and the group projects can be found here and here.
This project is funded by a Small Study grant from the British Academy / Leverhulme Trust
