    Abstract

    In 21st century technoculture it is no longer possible to consider space in terms of the strictly dichotomized here/there, near/far or even, nowhere/everywhere, which dominated our understanding at the beginning of the twentieth century. Technological developments ranging from the telephone through to television, cinema, videos, videogames and the internet have created a credible impression of presence, where we may feel immersed in environments beyond our physical bodies within which we may interact (Richardson and Harper). These technologies may be broadly referred to as telepresencing technologies. Tele-technologies create unAustralia, which is a 'no place in which ... two [or more] people ... meet: ' a virtual environment for potential agency (Morse 17).
