This interactive video installation combines interactive technology, screen media, performance improvisation and non-linear narrative construction to unfix stereotypical narratives of gendered and racialized bodies. I use these forms to democratize, but not homogenize the cultured body. I am interested in digital video, interactive media and the Internet, as forms to explore the possibility of information exchange. These formats set a practical framework for global co-authorship whose implications lie in the interrogation of identity formations. It is within the capacity of interactive technology I think through methods for co-creating cultural and personal narratives about the body.
