Digital networks and wireless technologies are radically reforming the contemporary notions of urban place. As network technologies increasingly become the carriers of geographic annotations, they create an urban dynamic in which our orientation to the city is no longer based purely on static landmarks, but on a notion of theĀ  city in which spatial references may become events. This talk explores the emerging wireless landscape and references TRACE, a collaborative mapping project created by Alison Sant, to examine the interplay of wireless networks with the corporeal experience of the urban landscape.
