Telepresence is a real time experience that stamps out the distance. What is called telepresence is a combination of  dialogic experience of telephony and the unidirectional reception of television messages. It is an individualised bi-directional experience.

According to the William A. Shay Telepresence is a concept of projecting one’s senses to the remote location. The basic idea is that through an internet connection, an individual would control robotic devices at a remote side. (Understanding Data Communication and Networks)


Software! as Modern Art

Software as Modern Art

Traditionally, in art practice, the artists made a unique piece within a particular medium. There is no difference between the interface and the work that has done. In contemporary age, with the new media, there are new ways of collaborating while practising art. For instance, as a software, Pan.do/ra needs social context and an editor who enter the keywords to make the categorisation.

“Software” is the  code which runs on the hardware. If the hardware is a painter, then the software is the painting itself.

Avant Garde as Software (Manovich, 1999) – The thesis of the Lev Manovich asserts that the new ways of avant garde’s seeing and representing the world transmutes by the new media avant grade into new ways of accessing and manipulating information.

Pan.do/RA can depict as a wonderful avant-garde modern art by the same way that Lev Manovich mentioned about the greatest avant-garde film is our times is a software such as Final Cut Pro or After Effects in his writing “New Media from Borges to HTML”

Futurism –  Goal of the Futurism is discarding the art of the past and celebrating change, originality, and innovation in technologic society as a result of art and politics. In literature, As it were Futurists  create a new language free of syntax punctuation, and metrics that allowed for free expression by freeing the word and taking it as a main unit of the concern.

Documentary as a word comes from Latin docere means to teach. The documentary’s position in history has varied depending on the period and the prevailing technologies as well as the contemporary needs and social contexts. Overall, a documentary is an attempt to put forward an evidence or the testimony of a fact or situation, within the complex historical process. It is a mimetic representation of real events.

The visual documentaries have become possible by image technologies. With the advent of the camera, photograph adds an intensification to the documentary and documentary making change its methods. John Berger noted tree decade ago, the camera altered our relation to the world by their capacity of preserving the instant appearances and their possibility to break any monopoly that is represented. Photography intervenes the daily life with a number of levels, it came with its technical, material and conceptual differentiations that can not be underestimated. A video, whose value is polyvalent by its future of capturing the movements, has become to the stage as qualified documents.

By years and examples, audiovisual documentaries divided to genres by their differentiated modes. Some of them did try to focus on objectivism while the others giving emphasis to the expression of the author. Some thought documentaries are portrayed of what it is, while the others have thought documentaries as a branch of art. As Aristotle observed and puts into sentences art represents not what is, but a kind of thing that might be; environments, objects, situations, characters, and actions are represented within a wide range of deviation from real life. The degree and types of deviations are the results of the form, style and purpose representation. In any way, while documentaries as a genre involve representations of real world phenomena more than any other art forms characteristically, they also remain as a presenter of framed reality traditionally demanded on the author’s point of view.

“the tiny spark of contingency, of Here and Now, with which reality has seared the subject” (Berger, 1979)


Film is an expository medium which has a narrative mode based on the power of showing.

After quite a few examples, and years with the image technologies, discussions around the objectivity of the image have taken their place. Basically, these arguments ground on that even if you photograph the very natural life, as you are included and framed the situation, you are creating an interpretation of it by your juxtaposition of details.

Today, attributions of the documentary and the skills of the documentary makers are changing rapidly in high speed developing digital environments. Spectator turns into a user. Documentaries are taking new forms by software designers who design the new modes for users. Users are taking the proactive role more than ever in the history of documentaries. Besides, programs having the proactive role more than ever.

Keywords organisation and categorization of the systems, there are novel forms of aesthetic and the objectivity.
