Mythic Hybrid
by Prema Murthy

“The boss tells me not to bring our women’s problems with us to work if we want to be treated equal. I am only one person — and I bring my whole self to work with me. So what does he mean, don’t bring my “women’s problems” here?” — a circuit assembly worker.

Inspired by the artist’s interest in women working in microelectronics factories, and reports of collective hallucination and mass hysteria occurring among women factory workers, Murthy traveled to India in 2001 to investigate these reports. What she found was a group of sane, rational women with identities constructed by a set of complex social and psychological factors. “Mythic Hybrid” is both about Murthy’s investigation and a critical comment on cyberfeminism.
