VNS Matrix, a group of artists from Adelaide and Sydney, work with gender subversion in images and texts from popular culture to create a feminist space. Their manifesto ‘A feminist manifesto for the 21st century’ speaks of the contradictions that relate to technology and definitions of identity. Their work introduces a visceral reality, the guts of the body and the female into their Cyberculture worlds. As Virginia Barratt expresses it: ‘I like the flaws of the body, I don’t want to be like a piece of beef jerky, I like slime and viscera it’s what pleasure is about’.
