The Body Politic of subRosa.

Rachel Falconer writes about the cyberfeminist art collective subRosa, a 
group using science, technology, and social activism to explore and 
critique the political traction of information and bio technologies on 
women’s bodies, lives and work.

Following a recent interview with the founding members of the 
collective, Hyla Willis and Faith Wilding, this article presents 
subRosa's trans-disciplinary, performative practice and questions what 
it means to claim a feminist position in the mutating economies of 
biotechnology and techno-science.
