Space is the reflection of community, ergo virtual. Mirroring us it disables us to sustain an illusion which can only exist as external. Green backgrounds and videofilters are perfection, but we are not. Being in space is flickering merger of our nonfixed virtual entities. Virtual is Heterotopias is Real. Fragmentation as base of community is the core of its degradation if we don’t evolve further from individual desires (mistaken for rightful being). With pandemic overshadowing our existence, we are forced to base our existence on virtual parts of our lives, transforming ourselves into symbols rather than being a substance. Being became TELE (distant). There is a clear abolition of previously accepted terms like happening, space, activity and presence. Is there a need for Public, when our computers have become our Forum/Office/Stoa/Bordel? Yes, if we translate Public into Shared. Way to achieve stable reality is to start from telecommunity based on individual(s), gradually expanding from shared telethoughts to shared teleactivities than growing into fully regenerated telesociety. Only through telePublic we start to reemerge as society of strongly connected individuals rather than a batch of pixels. Telearchitecture is therefore endless possibilities. These images are two representations of its possible actualisations.
