    “Webcam” is based on actual events and was shot entirely on a computer’s webcam. The filmmakers hope that it will make people think more about the technology that we use every day and the effects that it can have on all of us.

    Very creepy.

What is Cyberfeminism?
Surprisingly, this term was coined in 1991. Cyberfeminists resist a rigid definition of their movement. Broadly speaking, however, their main concern is expression and development of feminism in the context of online art and interaction.
It is “linked to aesthetic and ironic strategies as intrinsic tools within the growing importance of design and aesthetics in the new world order of flowing pancapitalism”.
The goals of cyberfeminist artists are varied; artists generally do not draw on one particular feminist school of thought. (Although there was a surge of art and research happening in the cyberfeminist field in the late nineties, that surge has subsided and many may conclude we are living in a post-cyberfeminist world (wide web)).
