Lisa Moravec has written a review of Virtual Normality – Women Net Artists 2.0, a group show Museum der bildenden Künste in Leipzig that includes the works of Molly Soda and Signe Pierce. Describing Soda’s contribution to the exhibition, Moravec writes: “Molly Soda’s sound-video installations show her in her private spaces, acting in a casual manner in front of her virtual audience.
