This essay aims to demonstrate how the webcams capacity for reflexivity and manipulability extends the instrumentality of the digital image and offers an opportunity for adapting and mediating the visual experience and representation of urban environments. It will discuss how the disruption of the regulatory control of the webcam opens a space for productive engagement with the making of city images that refuses either to privilege sanctioned forms or to render stable representations of the urban landscape. With a specific focus on the link between material and program, it will demonstrate how the disciplinary logics of webcam `content can instigate alternative three-dimensional formal tactics by allowing the architect to analyze, adopt and adapt webcam `content and ultimately to convert it into qualitative and experiential form.
