How does our relationship change to the natural world, to remote places, when connectivity is assured even if only by means of a passive satellite link? How does our tolerance of the real world adjust when so much of our shared experience, on a day to day basis, takes place in a purpose-designed container that allows us to edit out the problematic bits. How are people’s rights affected when they are not conscious producers of information but unwilling generators of data, as digital refugees?

In this new world built of mass-less architecture have we not become trapped by the Net just when we thought we were escaping the ground?

The Tracing Mobility Symposium 2011 promises to tease this question till it tears while pulling at the threads of ownership, imperialism and empiricism.
