NARS is pleased to present Doing It For Ourselves, by Sarah G. Sharp. Doing It For Ourselves explores themes found in underground feminist publications from the early 1970’s that still resonate 50 years later. DIY instructions for women’s healthcare, taking up arms and learning to shoot, and video and Cable TV as tools for radicalization are explored through traditionally domestic forms like quilting, embroidery and wallpaper. Doing It For Ourselves includes an Augmented Reality application that reveals layers of related imagery, video, and sound.
