Dr. Paula Gortázar’s article, ‘Plastic Borders: On the Photographic Frame and its Virtual Experience’, has been published in the special issue Boundries and Borders of Photographies journal. In an age where immersive virtual worlds will soon dominate our online interactions, the paper discusses current forms and uses of photography within emerging virtual spaces. Through practice-led, experimental research on the use of virtual cameras to record immersive, lived experiences and the analysis of recent works produced by the so-called virtual photographers documenting their gaming interactions, the study investigates the value of the photographic frame as a still, two-dimensional representation, while questioning its function within extended reality environments.
