Re: [-empyre-] sense of place in digital space....

in our performances, in which often "only" the live performers are
in direct contact with the interactive technology, I could say that the
notion of place does not play such an important role
not sure I can buy this...
the social scientist in me
rebels at this contention <grin/>
could you speak to this issue some more?
if they can "see" the tech in action
and they can experience "the other" in some way
then I would probably contend that
whether "in direct contact with the interactive technology"
*will* form a mental-mapping of the experience
which includes notions of both place/space
and of relative "proximity" of the other(s)
but perhaps I am misunderstanding
what you are saying...
