Hermes’ Mistress bridges technology and traditional handwork. In the middle of a huge, expansive red dress, I sat with my portable computer, embroidering a spiralling path of letter beads that detailed information collected from the Internet. In the beginning (1994) there was lots of space on my dress and the internet was rather limited, in the end (1999), towards the centre of my body the Internet was vast and the circles on my dress restricted. Information is valued differently depending on who is processing it.
