[ISEA97] Artist Statement: Claudia G. Herbst – CDROM Sensing Discrepancies: Gender Issues in Imaging Technologies And War

Artist Statement

With my CD-ROM entitled Sensing Discrepancies, my intentions were to create an interactive experience that is equally inviting to men and women. With its visuals, audio and interactivity I aim to point to the interconnectedness of imaging technologies and war, while drawing from my maternal family’s history. During the process of creation I was specifically concerned with the representation and experience of time as well as perceptions of power within the CD-ROM. While creating Sensing Discrepancies, I found that the format of the interactive CD-ROM allowed for a co-existence of seemingly contradictory concepts.
