Production Interdisciplinary Interaction Orchestration Reflexivity Incommensurability Conversation Collaboration


In this section I will explore some elements of collaboration between actors. It must be clear by now that I am using the case studies to explore presence and that I do not intend to conduct a historical study. I will not address the political implications of both networked events. Even though political and professional motivations were part of the reason that people became involved in the networked events, I will look at what happened as a collaboration between actors. I will look at what happened when he or she acted. It is the actor that ultimately creates one reality from the perceived presences, and performs his or her presence in relation to these. It is also the actor that accepts mediated presences when certain conditions are fulfilled and it is the actor that interacts, for whatever reason.
