Peepshow 2.0: Interactive Reflections is an interactive installation that investigates the relationship between spectators and performers within a digital media context.
This research focuses on the use of social media as a tool for women in Iran to express themselves, through digital performance, in ways that are not physically possible in public. The paper analyzes and contextualizes the current intersection of gender and technology in Iran through a contemporary analysis of cyberfeminism and gender-based segregation. As an artwork, the project examines the ways in which social media reflects a viewer’s actions back at them. Through the development of an interactive and responsive installation, Peepshow 2.0 invites viewers to engage in the creation of a feedback loop that reflects and mirrors their participation.
The development of this paper and interactive artwork serves as a means for me, an Iranian in diaspora, to explore and communicate the complex situation of social freedom for women in Iran.
