The final exhibition in the Momentum series will be at the Dana Women Artists Series Galleries in Douglass Library. Each of the artists approaches the use of technology as a tool to invent new contexts for engagement in the realms of biology, cultural and environmental conditions, language, daily life, time, and human movement. Feminist artists have often used their work to ignite discussion on these topics. The artists in this show work with technology and challenge gender-biased notions of who employs technology, and showcase women artists' ability to break new ground.

Exhibition of recently published books by artist Adrianne Wortzel, Solace and Perpetuity: a life story, on view at the Rutgers Art Library. Consisting of 176 selected documents written by the artist, spanning over 20 years; the documents were numbered in no particular order and then each document in turn broken down into paragraphs which are numbered consecutively within each document. These paragraphs are then put through an algorithm created by Gabriel Ferrin and presented as an entire randomized "novel". It's nature is autobiographical where any one experience is broken down into text "bytes". As a book publication, no two volumes are alike, as each of them represents a different dis-order of the entire text.

Trans Technology focuses on technological art and artifacts that engage in trans, queer and feminist projects that help to trans (to use the word as a verb: spanning; interrogating; crossing; fusing) conceptions of the heterosexual matrix in technology. Furthermore, the exhibit addresses trans, queer and feminist studies and perspectives on technology, but in particular on the ways that transgender studies has approached (as Susan Stryker identifies it in the introduction to the Transgender Studies Reader) the recent "sea change in the academic study of gender, sex, sexuality, identity, desire, and embodiment." Without focusing on artists of any particular gender identity, the objects in the exhibit are challenges to the heterosexual matrix and propose new gendered circuits of culture, self, and belonging.
