Descrizione prodotto


"Working deftly at the intersection of poststructuralism and phenomenology, Jason Farman develops the concept of the ‘sensory-inscribed’ body to discuss embodiment through and within mobile interfaces. Enlivened with personal anecdotes, his accessible and theoretically savvy writing provides essential guidance to the effects that mobile media are having on important contemporary issues, from ethical quandaries to geospatial reconfigurations of social relationships." ―N. Katherine Hayles, Professor of Literature, Duke University

"This luminously theorized, beautifully written book provides the first comprehensive account of locative mobile media. Jason Farman offers us a distinctive, philosophically attuned perspective on the great cultural technology of our time―tracing the new relations among bodies, space, and culture." ―Gerard Goggin, Professor of Media and Communications, University of Sydney

"Farman's Mobile Interface Theory is the first [book] that focuses completely on theory for mobile media, and, in doing so, provides an excellent foundation for all of us interested in this area of media scholarship." ―Dene Grigar, Washington State University Vancouver, in Leonardo Reviews

"Farman’s text represents an ambitiously thoughtful and well-written attempt to understand locative media in terms of embodied experience." ―Dan Hassoun, University of Minnesota, in The International Journal of Communication 

WINNER OF THE 2012 ASSOCIATION OF INTERNET RESEARCHERS BOOK AWARD: "[Mobile Interface Theory] has the potential to inform new scholarship, re-set directions, and remind us that, now, the Internet is not somewhere else, but right here, in our pockets, our minds, our places." ―AoIR Book Award Committee

"Mobile Interfaces in Public Spaces...would work...well as a foundational text in a course on mobile theories...[and] would likely be of interest to those seeking a richer theoretical understanding of how we experience space and time in an increasingly networked world." - Ryan S. Eanes, University of Oregon, USA


Mobile media – from mobile phones to smartphones to netbooks – are transforming our daily lives. We communicate, we locate, we network, we play, and much more using our mobile devices. In Mobile Interface Theory, Jason Farman demonstrates how the worldwide adoption of mobile technologies is causing a reexamination of the core ideas about what it means to live our everyday lives. He argues that mobile media’s pervasive computing model, which allows users to connect and interact with the internet while moving across a wide variety of locations, has produced a new sense of self among users – a new embodied identity that stems from virtual space and material space regularly enhancing, cooperating or disrupting each other. Exploring a range of mobile media practices – including mobile maps and GPS technologies, location-aware social networks, urban and alternate reality games that use mobile devices, performance art, and storytelling projects – Farman illustrates how mobile technologies are changing the ways we produce lived, embodied spaces.

5.0 su 5 stelle Unique, Fascinating and Educational 21 settembre 2013
Di David - Pubblicato su

The mission was to find a book dealing with Mobility and modern trends. The Amazon search engine universe manifested the book "Mobile Interface Theory." This is the very first book I have "rented" for $9.00. The content of the book was both engrossingly interesting and also difficult to follow, due to all the new buzzwords. Is it worth it? Yes! However, be prepared to have your hair blown back with a flash flood of new terms. "Mobile Interface Theory" is an academic book attempting to shed some light on the basic theory behind this new digital mobile revolution, without being hopelessly outdated the minute the book hit the stands.

Cyberculture / Micro-Places / Smart Mobs / Pervasive Computing / Wearable Computing / Mobile Interface Embodiment / Biomapping / Locative Interfaces / Site-Specific Storytelling / Artifact Engaged Interaction / Unpracticed Databases / Digital Tagging / Mobile Media Narrative / Sensory-inscribed / Mobil Urban Markup / Polyvocality / Mobile Media bubbles /....... I need to stop now.

"Mobile Interface Theory" will absolutely deliver on the promise of expanding your mental horizon of this new emerging mobile world. Did I understand everything written in the book? NO, and I have a degree in Philosophy. This is a book that demands to be taken seriously, and read at least twice if not three times. It is challenging not only due to the new words, but also to the fact that it provides a broad overview of mobile media culture at a level that most of us would not experience.

While reading this book, I started to become much more aware of examples of mobile Interfacing, such as the Streetmuseum application. This mobile device application will show you an overlay of a modern photograph with a historical photograph, and I believe uses GPS technology to guide the user in the field. I began to notice photographs of this application being shared on Facebook by friends in England.

The notes of this book are a source of future reading and research. Jason Farman is likely one of the few academic scholars who have attempted to tackle from a philosophical view just what in the world is going on between society and Mobility. Reading this book has changed my perspective when I watch people engage with mobile technology, providing new insight to the driving factors behind this mobile media social revolution.

I will absolutely be reading his future work.

Be prepared to think when reading this challenging content but well worth it. I took off one star as the Dr Farman assumes that we are all well versed in a plethora of philosophies from a plethora of philosophers...I spent a bit of time looking into a number of different philosophies in order to make sense of the text. This is clearly a graduate/phd level work.

Smart study of mobile interface in the avant-garde of the digital world, viewing internet as generative or an authoring tool. Mobile technology is revolutionizing our society in the sense that we can, more and more, match our mobility and take some advantages of this situation. I appreciated very much the analytical property: very sophisticated and up-to-date.

Expected more of a technology book, is more of a sociologic study on mobile technology. Guess it could be useful to someone who is into that kind of stuff.
