Kilogirls are a material unit that for a short time in the mid-twentieth century measured computer power, based on the women whose work underpinned the computers’ operations - a kilogirl representing the computer power of 1,000 women. The collective Superkilogirls researches the material infrastructures of computing, its entanglement with women’s labour, and how the historical marginalisation of these efforts reverberate now.
Superkilogirls is a collaboration between Camila Galaz (USA), Ana Meisel (UK) and Lua Vollaard (NL). Camila and Ana together host Our Friend the Computer, a podcast exploring alternative & non-US-centric computing histories and their relationship to society.
