cyber/technofeminist cross-readings

https://cross.virtualprivateserver.space

This is the code for a cyber/technofeminist cross-reader, developed in the context of the exhibition Computer Grrrls in Paris (March - July 2019). - https://gaite-lyrique.net/evenement/computer-grrrls

A cross-reading allows for a specific type of reading that does not follow a linear order, but follows a self-chosen path. Reading becomes an act of creating relations and threading connections, reading across different domains.

This cyber/technofeminist cross-reader does not follow one but two axes, bridging the act of reading a collection of texts, with the act of reading a tool. Reading across a collection of manifestos, while reading the algorithm that is used to do so.
