Abstract

This paper addresses the continuing convergence and integration of digital electronic media, and in particular, virtual reality as an exemplar phenomenal media. The author explores and further develops the theme that each of such media entails a specific lexicon or language of use that continually evolves. For this media to be effective, however, it must be widely understood within its community of practice. In this paper, virtual reality is discussed as an exemplar new-media application as a means of virtual representation or reflection of events or behaviours in the real world from a socio-technical perspective.
