Summary Mobile media has become a crucial part of everyday storytelling. As we move through our daily rhythms and rituals, mobile media weave multiple cartographiesvisual, social, spatial and temporal. Far from placeless, the history of mobile media has been one in which the important stories of place and locality are reinforced. By contextualising story-making through early explorations into mobile media as art and alternative modes of learning, Hjorth and Richardson reflect upon how play can provide a productive lens for understanding mobile storytelling. They then explore a series of play workshops that were founded to think through the role of mobile games in everyday life and as part of place-making techniques.
