Wayfaring, Co-Presence and Mobility: Conceptualising and Re-Conceptualising with Smartphones
The development of camera phones in the late 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 our creative practice research practices. Our overarching research asks: “What new forms of screen production are emerging through wayfaring with a smartphone in hand and in what ways is creative practice research engaging with these forms?” In this chapter, we explore how screen practitioners can think about their work pre-development in both practical and philosophical ways, by presenting a candid account of our own practices. This chapter is an expanded and revised version of an earlier work (Kilby and Berry 2018).
