A set of books, works, publications and essays are sourrounding the start of our work with the *variable environment* or the *mobile environment* theme. Those references are not necessarily close to our subject at all time, but in any case, they inspire us on a certain angle (theory, design --interaction, visual, objects--, space or micro-space).
As you will notice, these references are quite eclectic: it underlines the fact that our approach is quite transversal (linking the work of designers --interaction, visual, objects--, architects, scientists), rhizomatic and post-modern rather than disciplinary. There is also a lack of good documentation about mobile (media) environments at the time we start this project.
