Among the different labels applied to describe the present century, the most generally accepted one is "the age of anxiety". There are some obvious anxiety-creating situations in our day, such as wars, political and economical confusions, disasters, but also a less obvious but more deeper source of anxiety is the new technologies, more specifically the Computer Mediated Communication (CMC). Technology is beginning to mediate our social relationships, our self-identities and our social life. The position of communities and the self in CMC is showing the very character of anxiety. The body in the net is deterritorialised, displaced and dislocated. The anxiety platform is not looking to find an answer or solution to anxiety. But instead display the double character of anxiety. Anxiety has no proper place. So is the self in CMC. In the project , 2D graphics (Photoshop, Freehand), Dreamweaver, After Effects and Acid Pro is used.
