Abstract

This observational text posits the conundrum of experiencing locative media projects first-hand, which are intrinsically nomadic and ephemeral, whereby their traces or archival afterlives are left behind as data, tags, and other textual, aural and image renderings. Likewise many locative media projects are increasingly repositioning these iterative aspects contextually, spatially, or through diverse viewing platforms. I will trace the German/Swiss theatre collective Rimini Protokoll's work CALL CUTTA Mobile Phone Theatre and its tangential offshoots or afterlives as a starting point to muse on the notion of iterations and location aware, urban and mobile manifestations that resonate and amplify various aspects of our globalized condition.
