In what ways can women mobilize digital media toward political and artistic agendas? This panel will explore the way women, as an intersectional group, can deploy technology to create new pathways to agency and (self-)representation. Technology is not new and the panel will look at multiple generations of artists and their approach to various media. Panelist Martha Wilson was an early adopter of video technology as a way to document her performances that challenge the constraints of femininity. Seung Min-Lee's work, on the other hand, uses live performances and installation to reflect our varied relationships to technologized food across races and classes.
