Our apparently simple and basic sense of our own location is, I argue, the fruit of an ongoing project. It is a construct formed by our implicit awareness of our current set of potentials for action, social engagement and intervention. Nonetheless, most attempts at technologically supported telepresence seem shallow and unsatisfying. In what follows, I explore the potential of richer and more varied technologies to impact our fundamental sense of location.
