|| This week during class, we all got on Adobe Connect (it was my first time using this software ever), and immersed ourselves into the Third Space together.
We discussed about how the emotional bandwidth (the quality of emotional exchange between two individuals) of texting is significantly different from that of video calling or social broadcasting since we are able to Read more →
During lesson, our class went through what was coined the ‘telematic embrace’.
During the lesson we held a online conference on Adobe Connect. Then we were asked to do a few tasks in front of our web cams. From where we sat, we could all see most of our classmates undergo each task rather differently, resulting in a wall Read more →
I am sure that all of us are no stranger to web-conferencing platforms such as Skype and Google Hangouts. Therefore, the experience of seeing one another through a screen in real time is something that we are familiar with.

In this micro-project, what we did was to Read more →
Telematic embrace is honestly my favourite micro-project so far. It was actually the highlight of my day. I feel that it is an interesting way to actually understand better, the concept of a third space which is the integration of the first space (local/remote space) and second space.

The Third Space as defined by Randall Packer in his article on The Third Space is Read more →
Second Front is a performance art group based in a online virtual world called Second life. The social construct of Second life is very similar to reality, you create goods and sell them.
