Project website: http://inventioproject.no/
About the project
In the INVENTIO project InterMedia and Department of Media & Communicaton cooperates in exploring digital genres by production driven inquiry in a mix of locative and broadband media and technologies.
- to study genre development in technology enhanced environments (Location and broadband mobile media) from a humanistic perspective
- to build a fuller theoretical understanding of mobile, locative media and articulations
- to develop prototypes, case based experiments and empirical material linking genre, technology and mediation.
Theory and methods
We apply synthetic-analytic and production-based research approaches to design, use and analysis of locative and '3G' media. Our productions are supported by InterMediaLab and a commercial partnership.
Department of Media & Communicaton, UiO
