Summary note:
"The mental image of the city has become complex. Since mobile phones have become geo-social devices, location-based data is increasingly shaping the way we experience public space. Until recently, the physical and the virtual spaces have been separate domains, now they are tightly packed together into what Malcolm McCullough calls the "Ambient Commons"--The collectively shared domain of environmental information. Media art practices have played an important role in shaping this development. This book investigates the potential of experimental and artistic forms of inquiry for helping us making sense of the city. The sections explore the sensory, structural and cultural aspects of new urban systems literacy - a re-examination of what constitutes public space in the real-time city."--Publisher's website.
