“By combining new media with performance and the material arts, I comment on the increasing hybridity of our everyday lives.” Prema Murthy

Bindigirl is a web project that questions our growing relationship with distance and tele-erotics, tourism and intimacy. It is based on what the artist calls, Bindi, her "avatar" in screenal space. Bindi is a construct of fe/male desire, created out of what is deemed "exotic" and "erotic". Bindigirl draws parallels between technology and religion and questions these as a means for transcendence and the creation of a utopian space.
