This image is a created based on Donna Haraways Cyborg Manifesto. The connection of animal to human to machine- natural/non-natural, work to create a kind of self portrait, as my project itself is a form of self-portraiture.
As I extend myself into future, upload download manipulate and reproduce, I look to the past. I grew up in Arizona, the desert, on disputed land, on stolen land. A photograph from the Archived west, white men-Troop C, 5th Calvary to be exact, who arrested boomers and squatters prior to opening of Oklahoma, no mention of the role of the black woman- or of course the cyborg and white woman from 2014.

Black and white medium format photography. What is it like to move like a cyborg, to be a cyborg? to be a woman? to move in space and light?
A joke, of sorts.
