Framing the Media Architectural Body

Patrick Allen, University of Bradford, UK

Paper Session 1: Theory.
10:00-11:00, Friday, 16 November 2012.

This paper develops an argument about transformations in the experience of the urban as a consequence of the rise in, so called, augmented public space. Contemporary media spaces of which media architecture now plays center stage. The argument is this: that through artistic and creative interventions that deploy these technologies and the spaces that they are embedded within can have a direct impact on issues such as the mediation of place and locality and consolidates the central role of the body as a frame in contemporary media spaces. The intention is to map the potential of a media architectural body.
