summary This paper analyzes the graphic digital interfaces of multiuser environments. Throughout the analysis of several graphic interfaces existing on the web - textual, 2D graphics and 3D graphics - and the role of the avatars (the body interface), the goal is to rethink the role of these interfaces in the contemporary time, just like a way to represent a subject (and a world) that is fragmented, multiple and deconstructed. After the birth of the www, the graphic interface of the computer, which was used to design graphic pages, turned also to be a tool to design digital environments. With the emergence of multiuser environments, the graphic interface should not only mediate the relationship man / machine, but also interface the relationship man / man. In this context, some questions, as the presence, the activity and the identity on the web should be graphically solved. What does online conversations look like?
