On Saturday, I attended Guinevere Harrison’s thesis talk on Neogeography. It’s interesting to see the work of our “field” contextualized for an art criticism audience. Of course, the links between neogeography and art criticism go deep, with Locative Media fostering us techies in the early days, particularly Ben Russell of the Headmap Manifesto.
I never heard about this. Tragic that our media, especially the bottom up media, totally failed to get this message out, and that a political border led to a conceptual divide. The environment doesn’t pay intention to our nationalistic designs on the earth.
