Wayfaring, Creating and Performing with Smartphones
The development of camera phones in the mid-2000s has generated new ways of making mobile art. Wayfaring, co-presence and mobility are concepts through which mobile media art can be reimagined. Our ability to easily document our movements through everyday life has shifted how we think about film and photography. This is the background for the creative practice research discussed here. This chapter asks: “What new forms of creative expressions are emerging and in what ways is creative practice research engaging with them?” The authors cast themselves as digital wayfarers whose online and physical worlds are entangled in urban and coastal places to research some of the creative possibilities to photographers, artists and writers presented by the extreme accessibility of smartphones. In this chapter, the focus is on the making of creative works.
