This chapter discusses the role of location-aware technologies such as smart phones and GPS devices in overwriting urban landscapes, creating dynamic new meanings that people can access by moving to certain locations. Because the information is linked to a physical site, it participates in creating paths that define a user’s movement through the landscape, as well as imbuing the landscape with semiotic, emotional and narrative meanings through messages left there.

Keywords:   media specificity, media materiality, media framework, practice-based research, recursivity, media theory, curricula reform
