    VNS Matrix / Julianne Pierce, Josephine Starrs, Virginia Barratt, Francesca da Rimini. VNS Matrix is an Australian artists’ collaboration who create hybrid electronic artworks which ironically integrate theory with popular culture. As feminists, we explore language, sexuality and power from subversive and ambiguous positions. As cyberfeminists, our mission is
    to hijack technology and remap cyberspace.
