Abstract

The authors describe their long-term collaborative multimedia projection-and-installation practice in which they address issues of gender and technology. Early projects questioned the feminine through body works and self-portraiture; more recent pieces contest the male/female bipolarity by focusing on hermaphroditism and intersexuality. Their artistic production ranges from films and expanded projections challenging cinematic norms, to immersive visual and auditive environments. Their interest in a range of diverse technologies--mechanical, chemical, electronic, digital--raises issues of interdisciplinarity and mobility within the various technological potentials available to artists today.
