    Laura Lee Coles has been a multi-disciplinary artist for over 30 years working in performance art, music, installation [both gallery and site-specfic] photography and video. She has worked as a consultant in environmental education during the 1990’s. She is currently interested in using solar-energy and portable energy systems to study and explore human interaction with digital technology while in natural settings. Her current work questions whether different experiences of technology in nature can subvert preconceived notions of the human-nature and nature-technology relationship. Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) pico projection technology was studied during the production of two live technology-mediated experiments on the Big Island of Hawai’i; the first in a coastal forest setting and the second in Kaumana Cave. We argue that mobile projection studied in outdoor laboratory settings may provide further understanding of the ever changing human relationship to both nature and digital technology. LOCOMOTOART is a creative field backpack that gives the user the capacity to explore and make digital art from and in the natural environment with independent power, capture, production and display capabilities. We question whether digital visual projection changes, transforms or alters the human sensorial connection to raw nature when using mobile projection in natural settings.
