Game Girls:

The War Against the Big Daddy Mainframe

VNS Matrix

VNS Matrix have come to electronic art through the practices of photography, film, video, music, performance, writing, feminism and cultural theory. The impetus of the group is to investigate and decipher the narratives of domination and control which surround high technological culture, and explore the construction of social space, identity and sexuality in cyberspace.

Their first action in 1991-92 was the dissemination of the Cyberfeminist Manifesto for the 21st Century, which was placed in public sites and published in various academic, art and popular journals. The 6×3 metre billboard graphic of the Manifesto has been widely exhibited. The VNS Matrix manifesto has been translated into Spanish, Italian, French, Japanese, Finnish and Russian.
