Digital Power: Activism, Advocacy and the Influence of Women Online

Incorrigibles is honored to be included in an online exhibition that inspires, empowers, and supports women, Digital Power: Activism, Advocacy and the Influence of Women Online. The Digital Power exhibition is the eleventh online exhibition organized by the ACM SIGGRAPH Digital Arts Community; a juried selection of visionary digital content providers: artists, storytellers, researchers, performers, historians, designers, gamers, film/video makers, communicators and writers.

The focus on women’s power in this exhibition, especially within the context of a computer graphics world that remains disproportionately led by men, highlights some major strands in the conversation. It is an important perspective to highlight and reflect upon as we head into the second half of 2020, where our everyday life will continue to be highly and necessarily computer-mediated, where our lives, our bodies, and our experiences will be shaped from without and within by technologies of care, of surveillance, of communication, representation, and control. What comes after the crises of the moment will depend, in part, upon the brave work women are doing online.

Digital Power looks at how artists’ works can interface with the digital and the activist community and how they advocate to influence others with research and personal stories that are well documented or personally narrated. These online projects enrich our browsing experience and give personal and practical meaning to the growing corporate control of the resource we know as “the net.””
