Transoid adds new firmware/
Medium / Discipline:
The main theme of this piece is using the android/cyborg/robot motif as an analogue of the transgender experience. Science fiction can be used to examine difficult to talk about subjects such as homosexuality and gender identity. The android is adding new firmware, new eye additions and is updating her systems. This represents a transwoman trying new makeup techniques and affirming her look after the experimentation phase.
