Abstract and Keywords

This chapter surveys the multiple ways in which mobile media art has been defined by outlining some of the ways in which the field has been defined as it moves from media arts and hybrid reality to a more holistic contemporary art practice. It is then considered how mobile art is heralding ways in which to rethink the relationship between the quotidian, the social, and the politics of data. Finally, the chapter reflects on movements by artists (such as Cindy Sherman) to social mobile media as a site for critique and questioning of contemporary culture and everyday life.

Keywords: mobile art, social mobile media, media art, hybrid reality, self-tracking, datafication
