Fear is the common denominator of a vast battery of contemporary phenomena, which in other respects would seem unrelated and, in some cases, even baffling. The version of fear that interests us on this occasion has to do with the contemporary digital revolution. Here, fear is not necessarily related to some punctual facts, but is nevertheless at work in the production of protected spaces: within these spaces, shielded from interference, the subject strives for a homeostatic enjoyment, a condition secured against the irruption of unexpected events.

Abstract

Fear is the common denominator of a vast battery of contemporary phenomena, which in other respects would seem unrelated and, in some cases, even baffling. The version of fear that interests us on this occasion has to do with the contemporary digital revolution. Here, fear is not necessarily related to some punctual facts, but is nevertheless at work in the production of protected spaces: within these spaces, shielded from interference, the subject strives for a homeostatic enjoyment, a condition secured against the irruption of unexpected events. In this light, virtual reality tells us something about the deep nature of technology
