The making of the mediated public space

Synopsis – The essays of this book discuss a series of reflections related to space and outdoor digital technologies – the so called Mediated Public Open Space. Thirty international authors and researchers engage in the nexus people, places and technology from different positions and perspectives. They shed light to emerging socio-spatial and technical mechanisms and the multiplicity of interaction of humans with urban spaces intertwined by contemporary pervasive technologies. Can the Mediated Public Open Space enable new interactive experiences? Can it lead to innovative realities where the community celebrate publicness enlivening the public realm? These are some questions posed in this volume and the essays that follow attempt to provide food for thought towards increasing the understanding of public spaces in the postdigital era.
