In support of Ada Lovelace Day (highlighted by Marc and discussed a
couple of weeks back) we are inviting all women who work in media arts
and net art, who are not already subscribed, to join the NetBehaviour
email list for a week between 23rd and 30th March.
We are asking them to squat the list for a week (of course we hope
they'll stick around for longer:) and tell us about their work and that
of other women who have inspired them in their own practice.
This is not a separatist excercise; we want to hear from all of you so
don't hold back.
Posts are welcome in any length, format and frequency and we are not
worrying about repeats or gaps. The following is offered as an example.
MY NAME: Ruth Catlow
Ele Carpenter - http://www.elecarpenter.org.uk/ for tech inspired and
facilitated participation with Open Source Embroidery, her curatorial
project exploring artists practice that explores the relationship
between programming for embroidery and computing.
Auriea Harvey - for her part with Entropy8Zuper in early intimate
networked performances http://entropy8zuper.org/wirefire and for Endless
Forest, Tale of Tales's bucolic social screensaver
Mary Flanagan - for her energetic explorations as academic, educator,
artist and programmer at the intersection of games, art and feminism
and exploring collaborative approaches to thinking about values in
At the end of the week we will collate all of the posts in the thread
and feature them on Furtherfield.org.
With all best wishes from
Ruth and the Furtherfield crew
