net.art Part Deux: Gender 1

April 19, 2010

-A lipsticked cyborg “part human, part machine” from Lynn Hershman Leeson’s “Tillie, the Telerobotic Doll”; lynnhershman.com/tillie

This cyborg is sexily pinkified with some shiny lipstick. Leeson’s “dolls” have eyes that are cameras through which you can navigate their inner world. Most of Tillie’s cache is images of women (or their reflections), in glamorous eye and lip make up, labeled as cyborgs who “eat what they see and become what they eat”.
