The topic of NXS issue #2 Synthetic Selves centres on how the self is understood in the digital era, investigating whether we have full agency in constructing ourselves and what kind of images of ourselves we are broadcasting. Online environments are playgrounds for our identities and places for becoming the other. At face value, online platforms seem to promise us the opportunity to become anyone we want. Yet what happens online has consequences in the physical world. And what happens online is supported by the physical systems in which we grow up and live. Technology not only mediates the narratives of our daily lives, it shapes them.
