Syntia _CAM. Re-imagining sex work thorugh digital storytelling

The Internet has opened the door into our most intimate spaces and virtuality has infiltrated our bodies, merging reality and fiction. The first cam-girls of the 90s were important early examples of how the internet could create a cyborg subject by integrating human images with the internet, setting the conversation regarding the relationship between technology, gender and digital performance. By challenging the traditional notions of gender and embodiment, Syntia_CAM is a hybrid, an alien, a sex worker. Neither fully human nor fully machine. With irony and a touch of playfulness, they uses technology to create multiple identities, negotiate rates, share experiences and new forms of agency. Are you ready to witness? <3

Director Statement

I am currently researching and working in the field of interaction design and post-cyberfeminism. I am fascinated by the ways in which technology is changing the perception and construction of our identity, questioning the underlying assumptions and power structures that are embedded in digital structures. My works are often provocative, challenging preconceived notions of identity through technology.
