Who we are Since its founding in 2012, FEMICOM Museum has been operated by Rachel Simone Weil. Weil is an experimental artist and video game historian whose work explores femininity, alternative histories, and speculative / electric dreaming. She creates art games and glitch art for the Nintendo Entertainment System under the alias Party Time! Hexcellent! and helps organize Austin's monthly indie games event, Juegos Rancheros.
