I am thrilled to share that my first set of #SELFIEPOETRY poems, part of my “Fake Art Histories and the Inscription of the Digital Self” e-lit project, will be on display at CODE/SWITCH, a multimedia art exhibition at Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, from May 27 to July 28, 2016.

cs_final3As described by the WMG team, “In linguistics, code-switching occurs when a speaker alternates between two or more languages, or language varieties, in the context of a single conversation. But beyond this connotation, code-switching is a phenomenon that references any way in which we subtly, reflexively change how we present ourselves. It becomes a means of expressing different parts of our individual identities, in different cultural and linguistic spaces. Highlighting this spectrum of code-based art, the work in code/switch will explore technology as subject as well as medium, and will offer a  survey  of  art  that  critically  reflects  on  the creative  use  of  tech, through a socio-cultural lens. This immersive and interactive exhibition seeks to bring together a range of artists, filmmakers, architects, designers, musicians and game developers, all pushing the boundaries of their fields using digital media.”

If you are around the Chicago area, or if you fancy a summer trip, please stop by Woman Made Gallery to see some cool digital art!!
