The print issue of LEA Volume 21 Issue 1 L.A. Re.Play: Mobile Network Culture in Placemaking is available on Amazon and the open access articles are available on LEA (Leonardo Electronic Almanac). The issue analyses how current location technologies have become tools used by contemporary artists, theorists, designers and scientists to reformulate our understanding of social engagement within an enlarged concept of place. These new mobile networks have altered the way people exist in and relate to spaces where the real and virtual world blend, blurring the lines of traditional spatial denitions and frameworks. This special issue provides a variety of perspectives and practices on the meaning and interpretation of today’s locative media.
