Carol Civre is a 3D/multimedia artist from Italy, where art is often seen in a classical way and where certain social structures remain rather conservative. Her work strives to overcome the boundaries of art and culture with which she was raised, with a specific focus on deconstructing the complicated relationship between women, technology, and art.
Carol Civre, Isa Ghaffari and Leah Roh are the co-founders of Motherlode, a female-run digital art lab emphasizing inclusivity and aesthetics through interactive design. Motherlode is currently developing Pillow Talk — an immersive, computer-generated virtual reality experience exploring topics that are systematically excluded from traditional sex education curriculum. Conventional sex education underrepresents the spectrum of sexuality and what is lacking often leads to misinformation from alternative sources. The topics that Pillow Talk will cover are the spectrum of sexuality and its complex relationship to identity, communication and consent in and out of the bedroom, and self-discovery through sex toys and masturbation.
