In this chapter we revisit a research- and design project entitled Teledialogue in which we were actively engaged as action researchers and ethnographers. The project aimed at facilitating a frequent dialogue and interaction between vulnerable placed children and their social supervisors. Based on the work of Isabelle Stengers, we relate her conception of science as an inherently collective practice and as care for the possible to the question of careful engagement in the Teledialogue project. We suggest three examples of care as assemblage, installed and emergent. We propose that to act and think with care entails unsettling care in the general and think of it as a highly specific and situated event, which is why careful engagement entails that we develop our capacities to care for the possible.
