Blog Post #5: Review of “Pieces of Herself”

poh

Starting this piece I was very confused as to where the actual literature or you can say “writing” was located in this piece. Clicking through the different portals I was pretty confused on what was going on until I realized that there were descriptions on the top right of each portal. As I began to drag things to the woman’s body as instructed, I thought that something would come out of it.

The only thing I got out of it was a deeper message. The author explores a woman’s body through nodes of exploratory context of home, work, and community. As you click and drag nodes onto the woman’s body you can see the meaning behind where the items being dragged plays a deeper meaning towards the empowerment of women.

This interactive drag and drop game explores the embodiment and feminine identity. As an advocate of women empowerment, I very much appreciated the feminine aspect of how powerful the meaning behind the drag and drops nodes had. For example, there was a node of a brain to drag meaning education and/or intelligence. Another node that stood out to me was the finger prints. To me embodied somewhat of an identity.

All in all, this piece was powerful in the sense of a deeper message, granted it was a little confusing towards the beginning and this is definitely not for simple minded people. Pieces that allow my mind to get stimulated are always good in my opinion.
