The Safety Protocol
We look at the relation between media and a sense for safety in the virtual word. In the electronic space we are all able to do almost anything and nothing can touch us. What happens to the natural sensitivity to safety and the fear of fear, our basic and ancient animal reflexes? Sometimes it seems that safety is considered uncool and boring but at the same time, contemporary safety-gear forms a futuristic and almost alien shape and transforms the person wearing it into some kind of avatar, a virtual and untouchable version of themselves. The equipment functions to improve the vulnerable human body.
