[abstract] Ubiquitous computing and our cultural life promise to become completely interwoven: technical currents feed into our screen culture of digital television, video, home computers, movies, and high-resolution advertising displays. Technology has become at once larger and smaller, mobile and ambient. InThroughout, leading writers on new media–including Jay David Bolter, Mark Hansen, N. Katherine Hayles, and Lev Manovich–take on the crucial challenges that ubiquitous and pervasive computing pose for cultural theory and criticism. The thirty-foure contributing researchers consider the visual sense and sensations of living with a ubicomp culture; electronic sounds from the uncanny to the unremarkable; the effects of ubicomp on communication, including mobility, transmateriality, and infinite availability; general trends and concrete specificities of interaction designs; the affectivity in ubicomp experiences, including performances; context awareness; and claims on the “real” in the use of such terms as “augmented reality” and “mixed reality (Ulrik Ekman, ed., Throughout: Art and Culture Emerging with Ubiquitous Computing, Cambridge, Mass.; MIT Press, 2012).
