Abstract [en]

It is stated that the use of ICTs has become integrated as a fundamental part of the infrastructure in contemporary ever-day social life. For instance, new ICT products play a decisive role for the performance of adolescents’ peer-group communication; it has literally become part of a “way of living” (Christensen & Røpke, 2010). In this paper I explore how a sensory ethnographical approach (Pink, 2009) may contribute to interesting perspectives on the construction of this “new normality”. Thinking of use of new media as a kind of work that implies cultural production, i.e. activities that include both consumption and production of web-based user-generated content, gives an opportunity to place the work (agency) of the human body in the nexus of inquiry. The questions I will discuss in this paper originates from research I have done on teenage use of on-line photo diaries; How are our senses attuned toward cultural forms of participation in web-based activities that have turned into routine? How can this kind of sensory data be represented through sequential art?
