Explore how the design of video games, virtual realities, and social media has transformed contemporary perceptions of space, time, cities, and community. Distinctions between virtual and physical territories are no longer tenable, as text-based and two-dimensional representations of space evolve into realistic, three-dimensional environments that can be occupied by large numbers of people. Mobile and surveillance technologies enable data to penetrate our everyday lives, transforming even quotidian spaces into augmented realities. Such advances significantly impact our conceptions of privacy, public life, and urbanism.
