This is a collaborative work between Deepti Silwal, who studies politics of city making and Shubha Kayastha, who examines the internet from a feminist lens. This multimedia exhibit is based on a series of conversations, guided by the Feminist Principles of the Internet, with around 30 individuals. These engagements opened space for people to express their preferences and hopes related to the internet versus what they actually experience online. It explores the complexities, possibilities, resistance, and desires for the internet amidst existing power structures in society. It, in efect invokes our imaginations to showcase multiple possibilities to design and use the internet while rooting ourselves in our own realities.
