KC Adams: Aboriginal Cyborg Hybrids on exhibit

Cyborg Hybrids brings two worlds together - Queen's Journal: Here's a playful look at stereotypes and cyborgs:
"Drawing on Donna Haraway's Cyborg Manifesto, in which Harroway describes cyborgs as people living in a technological world free of the limitations of gender and race, Adams uses part of the philosophy to create a modern vision of aboriginal people in Canada, who are part of the future instead of constantly linked to a romanticized past. 'I'm bringing them to the future with the idea of the cyborg. I'm painting them in the present and in the future instead of the past which is what the media chooses to do,' she said. 'There are not enough positive role models in the media. It's fighting back against those stereotypes that you always see and hear about - neutralize and mock it.'"
