Sutured Broken Mirrors of the Impossible by Lucía Egaña

ADA a journal of gender, newmedia and technology has published the article Sutured Broken Mirrors of the Impossible by the artist in residence Lucía Egaña.

The contributions in this special issue dream about specific geographies of the imaginary which they consider an active practice of doing. A practice that is situated, plural and collective, and which involves non-stop loops in which feminists are reading, quoting, conspiring, studying, supporting and summoning each other. Such practice also attempts to acknowledge contradictions that are inescapable and which reveal themselves through situated knowledges, and/or by the act of cultivating specific ways of seeing and doing (or not) (Haraway 1988, Murphy 2012).

This text seeks to contribute to the development of techniques for the emergence of speculative fictions around feminist imaginaries related to technology. It tries to search for mechanisms to intervene in traditional narratives framed within a patriarchal and capitalist vision of the technological. The usual visions and discourses around machines and machinations appear to us as a stitch punctured by violence (to the planet, the body, the voices). From the perspective of feminist ethics, which does not disdain the aesthetics and poetics of the word, it is possible to trace the grooves that open up to more liveable spaces and to suture the symbolic and imaginary tissues. Speculative, feminist writings in this way turn a problem into a potential solution, inverting the charge of violence through narrative agency to create exercises of healing re-appropriation.
