East meets West with Bindigirl. Log on, chat, peek-a-boo with this sensual queen of the web.
"By combining new media with performance and the material arts, I intend to demonstrate and comment on the increasing hybridity of our everyday lives." -Prema Murthy
Bindigirl is a web project that questions our growing relationship with distance and tele-erotics- tourism and intimacy. It is based on what the artist calls, Bindi, her "avatar" in screenal space. Bindi is a construct of fe/male desire, creatied out of what is deemed "exotic" and "erotic". Bindigirl draws parallels between technology and religion and questions these as a means for transcendence and the creation of a utopian space.
