Notes Increased travel and mobility has become an integral part of globalised culture, as we transit for reasons spanning leisure, work and refuge. With each transition, we encounter a range of spatio-temporal reorientations that are specific to the site/destination. Recently, calls have emerged from the field of tourism studies urging for a rethinking of the processes in travel as being forged through a vitality of material relations. These material encounters that we have in-transit are creative, processual and affective, assisting our reorientation and capacity to be both situated yet actively engaged with nomadic, global processes. This paper advocates the need for a greater understanding of material interactions in travel, and how these can be used to expand current dialogues of theory and practice through interdisciplinary forms. Propositions such as Rosi Braidotti’s nomadic theory and Nigel Thrift’s outline of non-representational theory suggest ways that we can creatively harness this increase in travel and mobilities, examining the daily encounters that travellers have, as they are situated within both local and global practices. These material processes provide movements where artistic, ethnographic and touristic experience merge, revealing new ways to address site-specific and creative knowledge production.
