Mapping Project

Florida is a state where many of the people who live here were not born here/relocated from somewhere else. This locative media project explores what constitutes “being local.” The idea of local can be metaphoric as well as geographic. In tandem to this exploration of the concept of local, students experiment with wayfinding technologies such as Google Earth, GPS and GIS as potential mediums for art making.
