She was a Computer
Drawing text from obsolete operational manuals, cyborg feminist theory and artificial intelligence programs, She Was A Computer looks for historical perspective on our current online identity issues. Record players, rotary telephones, and even the audience’s cell phones will be used for this interactive investigation of how technology affects our social selves.
PERSIAN LOOKING thrashes about with fists in air, highly manicured nails digging in the earth, and high heels prancing on the dance floor to sing out righteous modern rage. Tragedies in current events will be re-contextualized, giving salience to daily international news- specifically about women. What is the new revolution?
