Abstract

Digital tools such as online videoconference and online photosharing extend our bodies beyond time and space. They allow us to inhabit distant and sometimes contradictory spaces. Visual presence mediated trough digital technology enable us to establish interpersonal connections in spite of distances apart. Due to an increasing use of mobile technologies and these being linked to visual communication, photography becomes specially interpersonal and intimate (Villi, 2011. p 79). Contemporary photographic practices seem to respond to organic communication modi (Villi, 2011, p.60). The work of Clang, Steketee and Morrissey explores social practices linked to these new ubiquitous technologies and their embodiment in diverse spatial-temporal coordinates.
