This chapter focuses on embodied geographies of landscape, deep mapping and embodied forms of mapping, wayfinding, performance and art, including locative media art or remotely transmitted performance, performances involving live or recorded performers mediated by or present through technology. Two case studies of cartographic performance works are presented, Take me to a place, a song map for an audio walk created by Misha Myers in 2004 with diverse inhabitants of Plymouth, the United Kingdom, and Hayle Churks App, a multimedia geolocated app made for smartphone by Lucy Frears in 2013. Each project represents a different period of time in the development of locative media art technologies, but employs the capacities that forms of digital storytelling offer for immersive and lived cartographies. The latter project was developed as part Frear’s interdisciplinary practice-based PhD studentship led by Dr. Misha Myers and co-supervised with Professor Caitlin DeSilvey of Exeter University with funding from the European Social Fund II.
