dc.description.abstract We present analytic concepts that emerged from field studies of the everyday practices of Film and Television Freelancers. We categorised the freelancers? mobile practices into two dimensions: the interplay of flux and stability, and the interplay of the macro and the micro. These dimensions emphasised two key practices that the freelancers engaged in while using technologies to manage change in their lives: sustaining and transitioning practices. These concepts structure our findings in a way that may provide technology designers and researchers with a useful conceptual tool. These concepts draw attention to two aspects that have been little explored in the literature on understanding mobile practices. Firstly, the everyday uses of technologies to manage transitions between longer term durations of practices. Secondly, the integral role of stable contexts, beyond remote work spaces alone, for supporting and shaping mobile practices. en_US
