Grehan, H. (2013) Responsibility and the dangers of proximity: Responding to Caryl Churchill's seven Jewish children. In: Trezise, B. and Wake, C., (eds.) Visions and Revision: Performance, Memory, Trauma. Museum Tusculanum Press/University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, pp. 97-114.

Abstract

It seems the most seminal accomplishment of virtual proximity is the separation between communication and relationship. Unlike the old-style topographical proximity, it neither requires that bonds are established beforehand nor necessarily results in establishing them in consequence. "Being connected" is less costly than "being engaged"-but also considerably less productive in terms of bond building and bond maintenance.
-Zygmunt Bauman, Liquid Fear
