what

The HEROINES project is a participatory re-envisioning of a collection of monologues written by the surrealist artist Claude Cahun between 1920-1925. 

Using new forms of 3D scanning, digital fabrication, and sound, the goal of this project is to enliven a contemporary conversation about Cahun, investigate Queer performance, and explore the intersections of digital feminism.

who

The HEROINES project is facilitated by New Media artist/ scholar Liss LaFleur and made in collaboration with the Jersey Heritage Archive.  

Working with all 15 of Cahun's original monologues, performances include the narratives of 5 biblical, 4 classical, 4 literary, and 2 stereotypical women.

why

How can we question the boundaries of where the digital impression and the physical body begin and end? 

This project is an experiment in 3D scanning as a poetic metaphor that allows us to decode text and experience a new form of mediated performance.
