“Techno Craft: Meshing the analogue and the technological, the new masculine and the traditional feminism

This workshop will use traditional crafting techniques applied to and through old cables, wires, destroyed tech and machinery to investigate the gendered history of technology. We will explore the perceived differences of media and the affective experience techniques and materials offer. Reappropriating the physical technology into crafts calls back to the origins of computing, screens, editing, and the restructuring of “women’s work” that has gone on in the masculinization of digital technology. By creating new objects through weaving and macrame in the context of an academic conference, workshop participants will experience the traditional crafting circle in an entirely new context.”
