Full Description
What are the concerns of those who investigate spatiality across domains and across media? What is significant in these concerns – particularly for the design and evaluation of technology? How are these concerns represented? Can discourse from one domain inform work in another? These are some of the questions addressed in this volume. It is based on a series of papers presented at a research seminar in Edinburgh. As the volume shows, the responses to our call for submissions were wide ranging, and the resulting meeting, the editors believe, opened up new avenues for exploring Spaces, Spatiality and Techology. The broad range of this book stands in sharp contrast with other related texts which tend to be domain and media specific. The editors hope that this book should also serve as a new stimulus to innovative and creative thinking in spatiality.
