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.
