Feminist Designs: Ellen Balka discusses ways to make cities more inclusive

"I started thinking of technology as a language of action."

Professor Ellen Balka presented at Vancouver's PechaKucha this past February. Offering insights into the interrelations between technology, urban design and feminism, her presentation incites critical reflection on the values that underlie our built environments.

The fleeting moments captured for posterity by Google’s Street View are recreated in Cirio’s intervention, which features life-sized posters of the people caught by Google’s cameras in the precise geophysical locations as seen on Street View.

In case you missed the no. 27 launch party...

With a new website, a new editorial team and a new blog, .dpi’s 27th issue is ushering in a new phase for the online journal. The occasion was duly feted by .dpi volunteers, contributors and supporters this past Thursday at a launch party held at the Notre-Dame-des-Quilles bar.

The event featured the intervention of Danish artist Linda Hilfling, whose contribution to this issue’s discussion on hacktivism was a hack on .dpi itself.

Launch issue 27 and "live-blogging" session

The new .dpi team invites everyone to a special event on Thursday, April 25, at the bar Notre-Dame-des-Quilles (NDQ) located at 32 Beaubien East, starting 5 PM!

From 5 to 6 PM, the public will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the beta version of the new, more participatory, platform.

Those interested in contributing to the new .dpi blog, a communal space for feminist artists and their allies, can start blogging on the spot supported by the editorial team. Until 8 PM, you will be able to borrow the temporary username hacktiviste in order to publish on this website and participate in the live blogging session.
