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:

Walking arts today became a response to the deep environmental global crisis we are facing today. Walking is one of the keys to contextualize and deepen our understanding and relation with the planet place we live on.
