Giannis, Greg (2013) Peripato Telematikos: walking, cartography and software art. PhD thesis, Victoria University.


Peripato Telematikos began with walking as a means to explore and investigate the places and spaces we inhabit and our relationships with them. The research asked how can peripatetic art practices inform the methodologies used by individuals to (re)present their environs and what media art practices would be suitable to support these (re)presentations? The project sought to provide ways for audiences to engage with these walks in real time through their documentation by mobile phones. In order for this to happen I created a platform for the reception and viewing of the walks as they occurred. One interpretation of what was created by the documentation of the walks was what I termed a ‘subjective mapping’ of place. As a result, the final viewing interface was constructed with the intent that it would support the creation and viewing of subjective mappings.
