Miki Foster: Feminist Craft Corner

The show show invites the audience to question their assumptions about how we speak about technology and who can speak for it.

Feminist Craft Corner Preview

Miki Yamada Foster’s Feminist Craft Corner is a public access television show and an installation of collaborative Do-It-Yourself (DIY) experiments in crafting and technology. The public access show invites the audience to question their assumptions about how we speak about technology and who can speak for it. The episodes enact a queer staging of media production for the purposes of educating its audience about the intersections of DIY, crafting and technology. These interactive craft pieces encourage participants to playfully engage with objects through the activation of a queer and feminist framework, produced through the selection of content and the construction of form. The piece Talking Blanket uses embroidery, LED lights and sound to tell different versions of stories that activate different places on the blanket.

The Feminist Craft Corner public access show production team features the work of Lindsay Kelley, Lorenzo Estebanéz, Jessy Lancaster, Lucas McGranahan and Kaori Suzuki.
