"Where Are We Now? Google Maps, GPS, and GeoTags in the Landscape"

Friday, March 23 - 9:00AM to 10:45AM
Bayview Room

This panel begins with the premise that new locational technologies have profoundly affected the way artists-and particularly photographers-find, interact with, and even define the landscape. The widespread availability of handheld GPS units, the popularity of Google maps and Google Street View technologies, and the increasing appearance of geo-tags in social media such as Twitter are but a handful of the relatively recent developments that have shaped artistic practice. From an interdisciplinary range of viewpoints, we will consider this major shift within the framework of its impact on the negotiation between public and private.
