Abstract

This chapter attempts an intervention into debates about place and mobility which, as Tim Cresswell notes, tend to be “marked by disagreements between those who see mobility and process as antagonistic to place and those who think of place as created by both internal and external mobilities and processes.”2 Increasingly central to, but often overlooked within, these debates are body-technology relations, especially as they involve mobile media devices. In this chapter we consider the relation between place, the built environment, embodiment and modalities of presence in the context of mobile screen media. Drawing on the work of Edward S. Casey, we explore the relation between the body and mobile screen interface, and the way that the two work in tandem to alter our everyday experiences of place and presence.
