Landmarks is an exploration of the ways machine learning, and
specifically facial recognition, fails to comprehend trans bodies
(misgendering) and the threat this failure possesses to trans
livelihoods as these technologies become increasingly integrated into
our daily lives. The work consists of an interactive website featuring
compositions that explore these issues.
The site is under constant construction and revision and will be open for viewing and engagement as it grows and takes on new forms, content, and ideas. The intention in doing so is to invite the viewers into the act of coding and to resist a static form. This constant revision/evolution can also be understood as performance art through the medium of code.
Landmarks asks us to consider how technology sees us and what happens when it fails to see us for who we are?
