Mythic Hybrid

Prema Murthy

Mythic Hybrid stems from reports linking collective hallucination experienced by women in South Asian microelectronics factories to globalization. Using the platform of an online search engine and video footage, Murthy shot on-site at a microelectronics factory in India to explore the often-mythologized links between hysteria and women’s labor.
