Networked proximities

“…  Effectively, an ambiguous play between hiding and revealing, simulation and authenticity, and intimacy and voyeurism runs through the artistic practices that emerge from digital networks.

from Networked Proximities Artcle for ISEA 2011 Istanbul by Margarida Carvalho

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.”
