What are online relations anyway?

Where is the bridge between digital and physical relationships?

To quote and paraphrase The white pubes’s words on KPOP and incidentally the big role parasocial relationships take in its success, “idol offer us (the fans) a chance to follow them as they navigate from the realm of the unreal to the hyper-real [as] they exist in split and synchronized state: as projection, image and person. Instilling in us (still talking about the fans) a proper sense of kinship.”

Since now most of people are spending their waken hours online, am I so bold to propose that all relations are shifting into parasocial ones? We’re creating and maintaining our emotional relationships through the screen. Is there then anything we can learn from the KPOP * idol music * world and its share of parasocial relationships in order to communicate better?

I had a really good chat with Nycila about it.

Coming together of trajectories

Reconceptualizing the meeting space for it to be an hybrid of the digital and the physcial realities of both parties involved in the conversation.

Thinking of this meeting ground I question what is here, as in what is the space for encounter I’m allowing for both my guest and I physical realities in this digital world of mine. But also what is now, as to what informations is being shared through my computerized body. Searching for a representation of space that participates in the consolidation of my digital and physcial persona but also that shares these informations with my guest.
