Mother Cyborg is a multimedia artist who uses music, performance, DIY publishing, quilting, and popular education to elevate collective technological consciousness and agency and reveal the curiosity between individual people with each other, with technology, and with the natural world. Her art draws from and includes thirteen years of community organizing work in Detroit, Michigan, during which time she wrote guides and devised organizing models to fight digital redlining by teaching residents in low-income neighborhoods to build and run their own Internet Service Providers. Her seventeen zines, which include The Teaching Community Technology Handbook, and A People’s Guide to AI, document and disseminate community technology practices.
