Lecture by Kathleen Kuehn
The ubiquity of social media, digital apps and mobile technologies have turned ‘mapping’ into an everyday practice. We regularly ‘check in’, location-tag digital photos, create virtual maps, and publicise, write about and visually document our experience with and within space. As a result, the way we create, represent and think about space is constantly changing. As many commentators have noted, 'social mapping' activities enable individuals to redefine and re-present space in empowering and democratising ways.
