Funded by Halmstad University Sweden, 2014 – 2015
This project is carried out through a partnership with Halmstad University in Sweden, where Sarah Pink is Visiting Professor in Applied Cultural Analysis, focuses on uses of body monitoring technologies in everyday life. The project focuses on the use of mobile and locative technologies and apps to measure or monitor physical activity – including walking, running, cycling, sleeping etc. It asks how the use of such technologies enables people to imagine their future bodies and technologies in new ways, in relation to the wider question of where the future is located in the present. This project has been a precursor to the Sensing, shaping, sharing: measuring and imagining the body in a mediatized world project.
