  • 9. Rebecca Solnit, Infinite City: A San Francisco Atlas (2010) “…there were certain things that were meaningful, exciting, strange about San Francisco and about places in general that were better told through maps than through words. For example if I tell you there were 99 murders in SF in 2008, that’s not very exciting, but if I actually show you the maps with the murders mostly on the east side of the city, kind of scattered like buckshot across the geography and you can imagine the particulars of place, and you can see that it happened here, and it happened here and it happened here, it’s much more immediate and visceral and affecting.” Cinema City: Muybridge inventing movies, Hitchcock making Vertigo

  • 21. The Olympia / Tatler 1910-1963 “I saw my first sub-titled picture shortly after I arrived. It was at the Tatler, an art house disguised as an exploitation flea pit near Old Market – a 1939 Claude Autant- Lara comedy called Fric-Frac starring Fernandel, Arletty and Michel Simon. Not long after that I saw my first neo-realist film there, Rossellini's Paisa” (Philip French).

Locative Experience Design •  Emphasis on audio allows location to be the screen •  “Dialectical montage” / frisson between physical location, media content and user interface. •  “Magic moments” (Reid et a.l) – when the app interacts with location •  “Arm chair” mode needs to be equally compelling •  “SoLoMo” - Location-based engagement •  Social media / ability to comment / add memories •  Call to action vs “lost impulse”
