I am Wonder

The current issue of I Love You is Superwoman themed, which instantly reminded me of Dana Birnbaum's iconic video piece Technology / Transformation: Wonder Woman (1976). That piece actually has a lot in common with I Love You, namely the cheekiness, clever use of appropriation, and feminist themes. I can't imagine why it wasn't referenced somewhere in the issue. On a related note, I was happy to hear that the next issue of ILY will be princess themed. Let's hope there's a Donkey Skin-inspired editorial in there!
