Jen is an artist and PhD student at the Centre for Mobilities Research at Lancaster University. From learning to fly a light aircraft to stitching live GPS routes her work plays with the idea of what it might mean to inhabit mobile technologies. In collaboration with other artists, software designers and participants she makes work that explores processes of navigation, walking as a social research tool and how GPS might intervene in relationships between embodied views on the ground and the aerial perspectives of maps and satellite images. She has a spatial and tactile approach to technology, making installation work that invites participants to be co-creators: http://www.theportable.tv
