hdw – Looking Outwards 10

This week, I’ve looked at the work of Claudia Hart. Hart is an artist who creates computational art through a feminist standpoint. She looks at digital technology and media, and shows that new media technology is not a “rupture, but a reflection of very conventional ways of thinking”.

Tech culture is still a space dominated by men, and interestingly cites David Noble, who says that “high tech ethos is actually emerging from medieval Christian monasteries and describes it still being driven by an unconscious millennial desire to recreate the world afresh, without women and outside of nature.”

The Doll’s House Process work

These images are from Hart’s project called The Dolls House. It uses the philosophical concept of rebirth and renewal, and used math to create hyptonic images. You can see more here.
