Intensifying the more general historical tendency of communications media and technology to disperse themselves into the spatial environment, these recent developments are driven by technologies around the web, databases, media environments, popular technology and entertainment, and the need to navigate networks of assembled information speedily and intuitively. The configuration and organisation of information in space is increasingly achieved through integrated assemblages of physical and virtual environments, engaging the mobile, experiencing and technologically extended body of the user in the navigation of information. In these configurations, spatial environments themselves act as prosthesis, as extensions of the body.
