Abstract:

  • What happens when as a pregnant woman you are simultaneously interpellated by both art and cyberspace? This paper examines the social value of reproduction within the body of the same producer. The author situates her own experience (to avoid my possible dismissal as case material) by reviewing a range of writings on motherhood. These are in turn related to discourses of the post-human. Finally, Jones documents the experiences of becoming-mother and becoming-digital artist, identifying transient sites which go unseen and unnoticed by western culture.
