In September 2004 I took up a part-time Masters in Digital Art & Technology, and this week I submitted my final project and thesis.
The project is location-aware audio software that allows you to make field recordings while out walking, and simultaneously playback the recordings made by other people in the same area.
The thesis is titled – wait for it – Adaptive Spaces: Technological Augmentation of the post-Situationist Urban Experience. Actually I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, as I at least managed to work through some of the many random-but-somehow-related thoughts I’ve been having about this area over the last couple of years. If you are one of the few people who gets around to reading it, I would love to hear from you.
You can get the source code of the project and a PDF copy of the thesis at this page: Adaptive Spaces.
Stick a fork in me, I’m done.
