A self-driving car combines sensor data and radio signals to find its bearings. Refugees on the Mediterranean move through a landscape made up of GPS data. Navigation begins where the map ends. In constant motion in space, navigation produces its own patterns for path finding and creating horizons. How do navigational paradigms operate in real and virtual spaces? What is a navigational policy? And if navigation is going to replace montage as a principle of visual reasoning, as Harun Farocki implied shortly before his death, how does this shift affect the shaping of reality?
