With the rise of ubiquitous geospatial technologies, digital mapping and digital space have become an inseparable part of walking. Now more than ever, in part as a consequence of restrictions imposed on us by the COVID pandemic, artists and researchers are taking a closer look at our relation with the planet, with technology as a mediator, and some are putting locative media front and center as a means of reconnecting with the world around us, and with our peers in that world.
This, from a global-local, social, and ecological perspective, addressing climate change, migration and ‘deep time’.

Join a conversation with four prominent digital artists and researchers who have raised the above questions and made them the focus of their work, in pieces like Transeuntis Mundi , Supercluster, and the Cartography of Hospitality .

Speakers are Anastasia Zoi Soulioutou (Greece), Cândida Borges and Gabriel Mario Vélez (Brazil/Colombia) , Fred Adam (Spain), Celma Paese and Gabriela Mariano (Brazil). This meeting will be moderated by Babak Fakhamzadeh.

Speakers were asked to record a presentation and make it available to attendees, as a starting point for further discussion. Available presentations:
