Review of Indeterminite Hikes+ Moblie App, for Ecomedia Studies, Nov. 18 2014


Getting Lost in the Urban Wilderness with the Indeterminate Hikes+ Mobile App

“To most people, a nature walk spent in the city would be a waste. Nature is out there, a destination to be travelled to. It is forests and bogs, fields and streams. It is definitely not buildings, sidewalks, bridges, or cement. To connect with nature we need to leave our built environment, turn off our distracting cell phones, and retreat into the unspoiled ecology that we have lost touch with. Indeterminate Hikes+ serves to confound these common assumptions. The app, which is part environmental statement, part social experiment, and part art, asks us to reconsider our notions of place, environment, nature, and technology.”
