Abstract
Domestication of variety of new media technologies is gradually changing our everyday routines, topology of our homes, the way we structure our work and leisure time as well as we experience profane “being together” with our partners and family members. Descriptions of this ongoing transformation of our everyday life usually stresses process of individualization of our media practices and of our experience of “privacy”. However, simple tendency to individuate consumption of media contents and objects can hardly fully explain the transformation of previous “television home” into qualitatively new everyday environment. The presentation will focus on preliminary observations emerging from the ongoing ethnographic research of current media use in families in age of 30-40 and from several qualitative pilot studies of new media users conducted by graduate students of Masaryk University. These studies indicate some interesting remarks and leads to some important question on convergent / divergent character of media uses, on reflexivity of construction of our everyday media ensemble, on way we re-construct private / public dichotomy as well as on ways the ontological security is maintained in situation where television set is changing its role.
