Abstract

How do location-based services impact social life and reconfigure interpretations of physical spaces? In Smartphones as Locative Media, the author maintains that physical spaces are differentially experienced by people if digital information is accessed through locative media, such as the smartphone, writes Vyacheslav Polonski. This information acts not only as an exterior informational layer that augments the space, but also as a technology that mediates mobility, altering their environmental awareness and sense of place.
