TRANSMAGICSince I'm becoming a witch, time to share the magic. Queer theory released from academia, a spellbook of communitarian knowledge. Trans power! If you want to help send me your favorite spell✨
NEOTRIBEExperimention with neural networks. Algorithmic ping pong fun with my queer punk pop aesthetic. See the project page for more details.
Dissociation, Trance, Magic: Queer Traditions and Contemporary PracticesQueer witchcraft and trance rituals. Dissociation in trans literature. A queer method of coping, healing, and becoming. Gender dysphoria through the lenses of attachment, affect, and quantum brain theory, somatic sexology, lacanian mumbo, and schyzoanalysis.
⋆˖ ⁺‧ WORK ‧ ⁺˖ ☾Works available for booking:
La Queer Life - Domesticity, Kinship, UtopiaHow can we emancipate ourselves from the monolithic model of the nuclear family home and the heteronormativity engraved into our social and architectural landscapes? Inspired by anti-patriarchal and gender-fuck approaches to habitat, this workshop will lead us into a collective exploration of what queerness produces on our domestic impulses. Through graphic and embodied experimentation, we will develop our narratives of connection and shape the contours of our feminist queer utopias.
Casual Trouble - What About Institutional Queerness?How to deploy a queer anti-capitalist discourse in spaces that are complicit in the reproduction of the power structures we denounce? What is our political agency as people whose subsistence depends on compromised institutions? How to be a pragmatic agent of change while living as an artist in a capitalist country? Is it possible to navigate the lack of integrity and ethics in the contemporary art world? Together, we will discuss strategies and tactics to navigate these unsavory situations. Keywords: privilege, cronyism, tokenism, complacency, performativity
