Bounding Between and Beyond the Binaries
Saturday, December 10
10:00am - 10:45am + Q&A

Jill Fellows will speak about how computer and digital assistant marketing and design reinforce binaries between subject and other, human and machine, man and woman, and mind and body. And how the installations in Mouthpiece challenge all these binaries, unsettling them in interesting ways.
