This article examines the links between social space and processes of mediatisation and globalisation. The virtualisation of the public space is examined critically as a form of emptying or the disappearance of said space, within the logic of a technological and ideological totalisation of social life that makes it increasingly difficult to reconstruct alternative theories and practices capable of reorienting the dominant cultural dynamic. The author speaks of isolation, connections and spectrality, based on the video clip “Murphy’s Law” by Arianna Puello. Through this video clip, the author attempts to examine general issues on culture and invisible borders.
