This field of research focuses on the media and post-media user experiences taking place in contemporary ordinary life; it especially takes into account the intimate fusion between media practices and other kinds of social experience such as surveillance, commerce, housing, relational behaviours, and so on. My goal is to understand how such phenomena contribute to making evident (or at the opposite to hide) some contemporary political and social trends. See in particular the papers Lytro. The Camera as Hypersensor; Nikeplatz. The Urban Space as a New Medium; Glassroots surveillance. Google Glass as dispositive and apparatus
