Summary This chapter empirically explores the ways in which intimacy, surveillance and care are interwoven with and through digital media practices in Melbourne. While much of the initial discussion around surveillance focused upon corporate and governmental dimensions (Farman, 2013; Andrejevic, 2006) overlooking the informal, micro and social forms (Marwick, 2012), more recently literature has started to focus upon mundane, emergent practices around maintaining intimacy and care-at-distance in families (Clark, 2012; Sengupta, 2012; Leaver, 2017; Burrows, 2017). We know very little about the ways digital media practices relating to care and intimacy are being played out in everyday familial contexts.
