Lady Tech Guild and Friends
With Special Guest: Rokudenashiko
May 19th, 2016, 7-9PM
The Lady Tech Guild will be hosting a show-and-tell evening with their friends at Eyebeam. A selection of residents and invited artist will be showing their work, after which they will hold a fireside chat about the power of women working in technology, in art and together.
The Lady Tech Guild is a collective of creative women who are artists, designers, biohackers, educators and entrepreneurs in the 3D and emerging technology world.
The Lady Tech Guild was formed in 2013 when they realized they were all braving the waters of emerging technology alone and started to get together in informal gatherings to share tips, resources, tech support and soon emotional support too. Having the power as a collective has opened numerous doors for them and through their organization, they want to encourage and support like minded girls and women to become resourceful, inspired creative professionals.
Special guest Rokudenashiko will present her work and discuss her recent arrest, trial, and verdict.
Rokudenashiko (“good-for-nothing girl” or “bad girl”) is a Japanese sculptor and mangaka. She is known for her series of decorated vulva moulds, or Deco-Man, a portmanteau of “decorated” and “manko,” which is Japanese slang for vagina. The moulds have taken the shape of dioramas, kawaii characters and a kayak based on a 3D scan of her genitalia, which she dubbed the “pussy boat.” The scan led to her arrest in 2014 for alleged violation of Japanese obscenity laws.
