LIVE EVENTS Each live event to film the stories involved developing networks with local businesses, government agencies, and professionals outside the cultural realm who facilitated and made possible the creation of communicational spaces where Badani could videotape conversations with local inhabitants.\n Collaborative works aspire to egalitarian conditions and multiple opportunities for interaction-an extension of geographical spaces for action and reflection. In the latter instances, it seems important that users manifest their virtual identity and that they position themselves within a distinct location, building an identity through body and nation-a complete self-branding.4 What appears here reflects a "double bind" phenomenon, observable also in the movement of people within the European community, because the concept of boundaries has become relative in a geopolitical and ideological sense, thanks to the Schengen contracts allowing free movement of people across Europe.5 However, on the one hand there is an attempt to make boundaries between countries more open, while on the other hand, border control has elaborated stricter measures through so-called "early controls" or biometrical controls.
