Interessant: „The Persistence of Surveillance: The Panoptic Potential of Locative Media“ von Andrea Zeffiro (PDF).
Locative media connects to a longer tradition associated with communication technologies and the arts, notably artistic experimentation with telecommunications media in the 1970s. Yet, what sets locative media apart is its commitment, engagement, and deployment of Western controlled satellite technologies. Yet the democratization of the tools and data generated via surveillance technologies is complicated by the fact that these technologies are necessary in the formation of locative media. This diminutive analysis will briefly outline locative media’s relationship to and its radical break from surveillance technologies and in turn isolate the intrinsic tension of locative media; its anomalous position as an appropriation and assimilation of surveillance technologies.
