Abstract:

  • Panel: Media Art, Mediation and Contemporary Art

    Keywords: Media Art, mediation, Land Art

    This paper describes a personal turn away from technological media art towards modes of practice that involve walking based interaction with the local environment. However, rather than stressing areas of difference, I consider points of unexpected continuity. The key association hinges on a common concern with dimensions of mediation. Within this context, I argue for a broader conception of mediation that is not restricted to technological media, but that can also incorporate our complex relation to aspects of lived immediacy.
