Lynn Hershman Leeson



With Lorna, Hershman Leeson created the first art work that used laserdisk technology. Exploiting the interactive capabilities of the medium, the artist enables users to explore and intervene in the world of an agoraphobic woman named Lorna.

In 2018, this groundbreaking work was acquired by the Whitney Museum of American Art and is included in the exhibition Programmed: Rules, Codes, and Choreographies in Art 1965-2018. Whitney Press Release
