Eric Gordon

Boston, MA, USA

Eric Gordon’s current work focuses on place identification in digital networks. He looks at how real world institutions, places and spaces, become central to virtual environments and, more importantly, how virtual environments become central to real world spaces. He looks at how this “mixed reality” is taking place in use of camera phones, photo blogging, place blogging, and synthetic worlds like Second Life. He is finishing a book entitled The Urban Spectator, which examines how emerging media technologies and their resulting consumption patterns have altered the design and experience of the American urban landscape during the 20th century.
