Heterogeneous temporalities, algorithmic frames and subjective time in geomedia

, Andrew Lippman, calls this ‘tour[ing] the area’ (Lippman, 1980: 32). This individualising of spatial on-screen movement at the MIT is significant for the further development of digital cartography, and signals a paradigm shift in the experience of moving geographic images: a shift from animated presentations to navigable geography-based applications. For Lev Manovich these early hyper media systems illustrate a fundamental principle of new media, which he labelled ‘variability’: in hypermedia, the multimedia elements making a document are connected through hyperlinks

Exploring the real-time smart city dashboard

-time model: there are many geographies, asynchronous because we have individual experiences of the world. Fixed things become flows, and flows become the fixed point of r­ eference … Perhaps we learn from this that computing in an urban setting should first of all not be about data and algorithms, but people and their activities. What happens when time everywhere is not synchronised, when it floats and lags a bit? (Bleecker and Nova, 2009: 19) From real-time city to asynchronicity 239 Bleecker and Nova argue that out-of-sync mapping reinserts serendipity into urban
