Presence is defined as the subjective experience of being in one place or environment, even when one is physically situated in another (Presence journal 2000). To produce a sense of presence and reality, sensory environment, individual preconditions and content characteristics are important factors (Enlund N.).

Experiments are carried out using different types of human-to-human communication mediated by distance technologies. Telepresence production may sometimes be an alternative to physical presence in different learning modes and digital networking production systems.

Another research focus is performance spaces that may be mediated with transparent distance technology for a different "language" and "storytelling" in the virtual space.
