NETWORKED GENDER (2016)
Gender has never been as visible in the mainstream culture as in the past years. Today's teens, also called the 'millennium generation', are clearly finding out new ways to deal with their gender identity. They transcend between genders and with that create new gender norms. They undergo a transformation without a specific destination. It is a fluid response to a rigid system. My research is focused on the performativity of gender and the constructed rules that go with it. I use the face as an interface of identity. My installation consists of a series of nine transparant faces, which symbolize the online subculture that flows between genders. In a vlog style theater play the faces are in conversation with eachother and colletively contemplate on genders and hetero norms. The schizophrenic conversation tends to search for answers, but mainly finds more questions.
