The author returns to the “becoming environmental of computation” as an explanatory concept for how contemporary technologies of sensing and monitoring interact with physical environments to new formations of environmental engagement and experience. Sensing in this analysis is about more than detecting external stimuli to be processed and managed as content. Instead, programmed environments call attention to the tuning and attunings that computational and environmental operations enable or delimit. The conclusion examines how citizen sensing and its practices of environmental engagement are bound up with and individuated through environmental sensors; the boundaries of “citizen,” in turn, shift and expand to include more ecological ways of accounting how citizenly engagements unfold.

Keywords:   speculation, becoming environmental of computation, ecological citizenship, computation, environmental engagement, experience
