Her Environment is an expanded new media art series that seeks to create an intentional space for all poc, non-binary and women artists working in digital media. Our mission is to focus on broadening the understanding of how new media practices can be used, and highlight non-traditional ways of using technology. We believe new media can be expanded into multiple formats of art making, from performance to installation and other various new media practices.
