Christian Nold created one of the most celebrated locative media projects which combines galvanic skin response with GPS data as you walk through the city to create 'emotion maps.'

His current project is not about mobility in this sense, and is not locative media, but it is about mobility of currency and international money exchange for migrant peoples.

The Bijlmer Euro is a complimentary local currency for South East of Amsterdam which creates economic benefits for local people, inspires social connections and builds a complex network identity for the Bijlmer. There are 2000 Bijlmer Euro notes that can be used at 17 participating local shops to get special discounts.
