from Networked Proximities Artcle for ISEA 2011 Istanbul by Margarida Carvalho
“This article undertakes a critical reflection on experiments with audience participation in artistic practices involving networked performance and cyberformance. The performativity of webcamming and, in a more general sense, the presentation of the self and participation in digital networks are considered in the context of the current intensification of self-surveillance and participatory surveillance on social networks.”
