The artwork is starting to come into the Gallery at the Duderstadt Center at U of M for the WCA’s upcoming visit “Man Up! No Balls About”. Cyane Tornatzky is one of the artists whose work will be featured in the exhibit. She is a digital artist working out of Fort Collins, Colorado and is Assistant Professor of Electronic Art at Colorado State University.

Tornatzky’s digital images play with the physical posturing of power. She has identified as a feminist since the age of 13 and over the years has seen feminism get a bad name in spite of the still omnipresent signs of white male privilege.

Tornatzky doesn’t feel adversarial to those in power. “Who can blame them for wanting to stay on top? Instead, maybe those not on top can ‘try it on for size’ and see what it feels like to unconsciously access a physical embodiment of strength and power.”
