In Chapter 4 we consider how mobile media require us to rethink the types of media and capital flows that take place in the Asia-Pacific region and what these movements say about cultural geographies. As noted earlier, the rise of mobile media has become synonymous with screen culture in the region. Mobile media have also played a key role in amplifying, as well as disrupting, media capital flows. In this chapter we address the tensions between amateur and professional art in relation to media technologies and how they impact upon perceptions of the environment. We finish by reflecting upon the ubiquitous role of camera phones in these contemporary visualization cultures.
