REFLECTING ON LOCATIVE MEDIA ART WITH FRED ADAM AND GEERT VERMEIRE by Mike Duggan and Cristina A. G. Kiminami 

Locative media refers to mobile technologies that have the capacity to locate themselves and other media on maps using GPS, WI-FI and cellular technology. These commonly include GPS devices such as the Sat-Nav, the smartphone, and a whole range of smartphone applications including mapping apps, self-tracking fitness apps, food delivery apps and location-based games. This technology has been extensively used by artists over the past decade and more, looking to understand how our relationship to, and experience of, place can be augmented by digital technologies. We now have a wealth of knowledge and experience of how this technology shapes arts practice and how artists shape the use of this technology. And yet, there is still very little in the way of a public conversation about how artists came to use this technology and how it continues to shape their ways of working and thinking about the world.
