Places, Representations, and Media Technologies

Type: Paper
Sponsor Groups: Media and Communication Geography Specialty Group
Organizers: Paul Adams
Chairs: Paul Adams


Place-making is a constant process involving various representations. Despite our involvement in mediated experience, place attachments remain crucial to daily experience. Media representations of place have evolved from static images and texts to moving pictures (film and video) to interactive and immersive representations (VR) to representations one accesses while moving through the landscape (AR). What is the status of place at this time, whether it is understood as part of the built environment or represented/simulated in and through these evolving media? How do material places relate to imagined, experienced, and represented places?
