How do people construct the set of media technologies they use in everyday life? Such question seemed to have rather obvious answer in days of "television home". However, a domestication of a variety of new media technologies has changed the "simplicity" of the answer. The multiplicity of media artifacts reveals the fact that people construct a "media ensemble" - a more or less reflexively created, changeable and negotiated structure of media artifacts and communication channels that fulfill their needs and which reflects the moral economy of the family. The presentation introduces the concept "media ensemble" based on Giddens' structuration theory and Silverstone's notion of domestication. The concept and its analytical usefulness is illustrated on data collected in ethnographic research.
