This talk is about how art, by strategically using technology as a form of reflection and criticism, can become a fundamental social impact agent.  I will talk about two interdisciplinary art projects: »Maquila Region 4« a mobile factory for the manufacture of electronic-textile artworks at marginalized areas of Mexico city; and »Yuca Tech: Energy by hand,« a local technology lab located in the Mayan region (Yucatan), to creating photovoltaic textiles.

CV: Amor Muñoz was born in Mexico City in 1979. In her works she reflects about labor, production systems, technology and society. She creates pieces that are implanted in the social field and that generate collective experiences that use art as a reflective platform. She combines performance and experimental electronics with traditional media such as drawing and textile work.
