Danish Reality TV production with Korowai of West Papua

This paper explores how different social orders are created through audiovisual media, digital technologies, and the senses. The paper's main concerns include how specific digital and media technologies are defined and used differently around the world; how media forms and visual images are actually made and experienced in practical life; and how new digital economic platforms and communication practices relate to large-scale political structures. Different portions of the paper focus on photography, television, film, radio, popular music, social media, and platform capitalism.
