Clicking in : hot links to a digital culture by Lynn Hershman-Leeson ( Book )
9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
All things digital dominate the discourse of the nineties and inspire opinion that ranges from the outrage of the neo-Luddite to the heady optimism of the digiphile. In this collection, the most provocative voices of the Digital Age grapple with the direction of digital technology and its concomitant issues, including virtual identities and their relationship to the physical self, the collision of commercial and community interests on the Net, the Net threat to intellectual property, and the merger of art, popular culture, and commerce in interactive media. In Clicking On, the beautifully wrought companion CD-ROM artwork, Lynn Hershman Leeson appropriates the tools of digital culture to examine issues of privacy, invisibility, and authenticity. The disk includes video clips of interviews with the contributors. The CD-ROM is Macintosh and PC compatible

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For over four decades, through performance, photography, installations, artificial intelligence agents, web presences and cinema, Lynn Hershman's work has explored what it is to live in a world of mediated, monitored, and manipulated identities. Corporeal and virtual presences become simulated entities that in turn reveal personal identity and its impact on cultural construction. Often Hershman's narratives retrieve formerly lost histories that are excavated through technological manipulation. The process brings to the surface the moral consequences of an unpredictable system of covert meanings. All of her work explores encryption of privacy in an era of surveillance as well as personal and societal identity in a time of pervasive yet covert manipulation. Many of the narratives focus on the revitalization and restoration of personal empowerment. The selected works in this collection focus on broad issues of identity and culture, particularly the technological projections that impact individuals and society.--http://www.microcinemadvd.com/

Seducing time 1984-2008 selected prize winning videotapes ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For over four decades my work has explored the consequences of living in a world of mediated, monitored and manipulated identities as well as the associated impact of simulation on identity and cultural construction - encryption of privacy in an era of surveillance and identity in an time of pervasive and covert media manipulation. I have explored these themes in performance, photography and installation, A.I Bots and cinema. Time itself becomes a medium for these electronics subversions that fracture and intervene narratives. The works selected for this collection focus on technological projections that impact individuals in society. (Jaquette)
