This thesis explores the projects PDPal, Yellow Arrow, and REMAPPING LA, showing that the artists who produced them have extended and advanced Situationist International praxis through the use of mobile, Web-based technologies. In addition, the use of the Internet as a place for public conversation and public domain has contemporized Jurgen Habermas' definitions of public and public sphere and Constant Nieuwenhuys' imagined ideal city, New Babylon. The projects investigated show that today's artists and thinkers are not only recalling and contemporizing the revolutionary work of the SI, they are redefining public exploration by interrupting both our usual motivations for using mobile devices, and the public space through which we move.(Minneapolis, MN: University of Minnesota Design Institute, 2007) 203. ... 5 In 2003, PDPal was part of the aquot;Twin Cities Knowledge Mapsaquot; commissioned by the University of Minnesota Design ... a group of urban guides that take the public on tours of urban environments using the language of the Park Ranger. 11 Simon Ford, The Situationist International: A Usera#39;s Guide (London:Black Dog, 2005) 34.
