Francesca da Rimini


Dr Francesca da Rimini (she/her) is a writer and artist living on the unceded land of the Kaurna people in South Australia.

She has investigated the creative potential of digital and internet platforms since the early 1990s and was awarded an Australia Council New Media Fellowship in 1999.

She often uses avatars−GashGirl, doll yoko, Liquid_Nation, Fury−to amplify her voices.

Collaboration is vital; da Rimini co-founded the cyberfeminist art collective VNS Matrix, and art groups identity_runners and In Her Interior.

Her performance texts, zines, videos, online and installation artworks are a return to madness, gender, sexuality, power, and the prophetic voice.

Her international award-winning project dollspace (1997) remains a touchstone in electronic literature, and her unpublished novel FleshMeat (1998) records love and desire she experienced in the limen between VL and RL when the internet was still young.

da Rimini is currently writing a literary memoir interweaving constraint-based poems, essays, ecstatic visions, and spells.
