    • Persistent tensions/questions TENSION: Document the entanglements of technology in everyday life while enrolling technologies of mobility to better understand the everyday.
    • Persistent tensions/questions
      • What are the limitations to drawing upon these data about mobility?
      • What are the possibilities for intervention in these practices, representations, and movements?
