Society is suffused with digital information that codes, maps, and otherwise organizes offline place such that technologies may increase perceptions of risk by reproducing existing economic and social disparities (Davies 1990; Beck 1986). These perceptions (see Renn 1992) can also limit the degree of freedom of movement in urban spaces (Sandstig 2014; 2013; 2010). One way of understanding this and the importance of mobile media is through the concept of embodied space (Lefebvre 1991) where the virtual always implies a counterpart indelibly linked to the actual. The theory of the sensory-inscribed body by Farman (2012) is used to bridge the body as sensory and body as a sign system. To define how space is produced in our mobile era the exploration takes off in the challenges counteracting the commodification of risk (Krahmann 2010; 2008). The purpose is to elaborate on how these challenges can be counteracted. The data used is the collaboration between the University of Gothenburg, Förvaltnings AB GöteborgsLokaler and the Foundation Safer Sweden in developing the digital safety walks in 2014 for Android and Apple platforms. Results: 1) By influencing the type of data employed in future automated decisions. Through: 2) the built in logic of resilience, trust and health promoting character of the concept of the safety walk; 3) how space is produced as a multiplicity of perceptions and inscriptions of socio-cultural meaning and; 4) user generated alterations of maps and representations of locations and thereby in the act of defining sites as locales.
