Mediated Lives

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper presents landscape as the continuous interface between urban media facades and the ever-expanding use of digital devices and their content. It investigates contemporary attitudes toward digital public spaces, such as mainstream media facades, interactive art installations, and mobile apps. Media-infused landscapes could, if handled properly, transfer the public domain back from corporate ownership to public authorship. This paper discusses examples of public participatory spaces mediated by new technologies and emerging opportunities associated with virtual social networks. The types of interactions and experiences that in the past were predominantly confined to art gallery installations or online chat rooms become main street events with broader participation and authorship. While perceived by some as invasive and overreaching, media participatory landscapes could also help us to reclaim the public realm and democratize its content.
