This installation explores the early cyber-feminist hopes of the internet as a genderless, bodiless utopia. The work asks questions about representation, gender and embodiment in Post-Internet culture. Set-up as a mock utopia, the work asks the viewer to question the effect of the digital/physical divide on how we understand and view sexualised and gendered bodies in online and offline spaces. The installation features coded Arduino modules that interact in real-time with the topography of the exhibition space.
