This talk looks at the potential for business services in new developments in mobile and pervasive media, particularly in the cultural industries and communication. It looks at the ways in which our working lives and behaviours will be transformed and raises questions about the social use and adaptation of these technologies.
Professor Martin Rieser has always been fascinated by the possibility of creating fragmentary narrative structures and interactive stories using new technology. This has led him into his current explorations using mobile and locative technologies and large-scale interactive video experiences. Professor Rieser has worked in the field of interactive arts for many years. He is Joint research Professor between the Institute of Creative Technologies and the Faculty of Art and Design at De Montfort University. His art practice in internet art and interactive narrative installations has been seen around the world including Cannes; Holland, Paris; Vienna, Thessaloniki, London, Germany, Milan and Melbourne, Australia. He has published numerous essays and books on digital art including New Screen Media: Cinema/Art/Narrative (BFI/ZKM, 2002), and has recently edited The Mobile Audience, a book on locative technology and art due out this year from Rodopi.
