The dissolution of the Other in contemporary communication

Malena Segura Contrera, Norval Baitello Junior


Based on a few analyses of contemporary culture and communication, we suggest that one can perceive an increasing dissolution of otherness in mediations carried out through the so-called new media, constructed from technological platforms which are increasingly distant from corporeity and its requirements. Experiences of enchantment are transferred from the senses to the apparatuses, dissolving the present time and the perception of the self in favour of supports or images generated by or for technological platforms. Technology becomes autonomous, generating hypnogenic subjects and objects around itself.
