In 1987, Betye Saar was invited to participate in a month-long residency program at Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s prestigious List Visual Arts Center. The literal product of that fertile period of reflection was her ground-breaking assemblage installation entitled Mojotech (1987), which featured a variety of materials including voodoo symbols, charms and amulets embedded into broken pieces of circuit boards, but the more elusive, and perhaps more complex reality that emerged from this work was Saar’s own realization that technology possessed within it a dualistic spiritual narrative.
