Her Environment is an expanded new media art series for feminine spectrum artists. Our mission is to create an intentional space for poc artists, queer artists, non-binary artists, trans and woman artists working in New Media. Our aesthetic focus is on broadening the understanding of how New Media practices can be used. We believe new media can be expanded into multiple formats of art making, from performance to installation and other various non traditional new media practices.
