A concept and new field of study aimed at the analysis of people’s reciprocal relations with computer-generated worlds which have evolved as a result of technological progress. Theoretically, it is concerned with the merger of natural and artificial worlds mediated by the human imagination, as well as compatibility between people and the digital life they have created. It prepares the ethnographer to deal with a wider category of ‘human beings’ - which someday may encompass androids and artificial intelligences
