Abstract

Following a trajectory of the virtual/material dichotomy as it stems from a classicist position of a mind/body and male/female split, I propose feminist theory as a potent tool to effectively analyze the artistic implications of virtual materiality. Obfuscation, bedlam, redundancy – these qualities, redolent of humanity, are typically considered the antitheses of insight. The chaotic can be an impetus for relinquishing conceits of specialization.
