The nomadic technologies of reindeer herders from Yamal Peninsula, in their multidimensional complexity – from the space-time continuity of mobile camps on the open tundra to multi-functionality of material things – enable and facilitate mobility in the extreme environment of the Arctic. The nomadic tradition contains a whole array of concepts (or principles), which, on the one hand, are ultimately practical and, on the other, deserve a theoretical projection. These include: nomadic transformer, mobile module, movement effect, techno-animation, material austerity, space-time continuity, arctic aesthetics. A study of nomadic design implies the usage of new methods of movement recording – MTA (mapping–tracking–acting), including visual data such as UAV mapping, GPS-tracking and 3D-modelling.
