About the Work

In Cyberfeminism Index, hackers, scholars, artists, and activists of all regions, races, and sexual orientations consider how humans might reconstruct themselves by way of technology. When learning about internet history, we are taught to focus on engineering, the military-industrial complex, and the grandfathers who created the architecture and protocol, but the internet is not only a network of cables, servers, and computers. It is an environment that shapes and is shaped by its inhabitants and their use. Both a vital introduction for laypeople and a robust resource guide for educators, Cyberfeminism Index—an anti-canon, of sorts—celebrates the multiplicity of practices that fall under this imperfect categorization and makes visible cyberfeminism’s long-ignored origins and its expansive legacy. Cyberfeminism Index was scripted into place from a set of Google Docs the author organized for its various parts. The design of the book is as much a set of coded templates as it is a carefully detailed page-by-page design. The book collects thousands of images downloaded from legacy websites—each image is kept in its native resolution, even if enlarged to occupy an entire spread. In this way, images show their native resolution by how crisp, pixelated, or fuzzy they are—they become material specimens of the web. The book references the lime green of by incorporating neon green ink throughout. Each image in the Image Index contains neon green to replace any 'screen green' from the original image, giving the book a more vivid, 'internet' feel. All 700+ entries are printed on the cover.
