The ubiquitous nature of mobile and pervasive computing has begun to reshape and complicate our notions of space, time, and identity. In this collection, over thirty internationally recognized contributors reflect on ubiquitous computing's implications for the ways in which we interact with our environments, experience time, and develop identities individually and socially. Interviews with working media artists lend further perspectives on these cultural transformations. Drawing on cultural theory, new media art studies, human-computer interaction theory, and software studies, this cutting-edge book critically unpacks the complex ubiquity-effects confronting us every day.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This massively important volume presents critical and inspiring insights into how computers and media are not merely discrete things but pervade and invade the world from the molecular to the planetary. Ubiquitous Computing, Complexity and Culture is transdisciplinary in the true sense of the word: not merely trying to connect different disciplines and methods, but carving out a research field in between existing ones; an investigation into the computational environments that govern how we live and sense. This is the key handbook for an emerging field." - Professor Jussi Parikka, Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton; author of Insect Media and What is Media Archaeology?
