Mobile media has become a crucial part of everyday storytelling. As we move through our daily rhythms and rituals, mobile media weave multiple cartographies-visual, social, spatial and temporal. Far from placeless, the history of mobile media has been one in which the important stories of place and locality are reinforced. By contextualising story-making through early explorations into mobile media as art and alternative modes of learning, Hjorth and Richardson reflect upon how play can provide a productive lens for understanding mobile storytelling. They then explore a series of play workshops that were founded to think through the role of mobile games in everyday life and as part of place-making techniques.
