Excerpt from Gaze Gradations - Afterthoughts
Part-Human, Part-Machine

Bodies and machines. The similarities between them exist not so far from the actual being, but births itself out of codes and ciphers. Something like an avatar, but “I” believe it exists as something else, something more than what we see. It encrypts your soul, your personality, your character and orchestrates behaviours moulded from you. But what does it mean for someone, a person of colour, gendered along their femme identity, to mediate the virtual site as a place of belonging? A place to seek liberation? Where do we find ourselves, to truly disrupt the methods that have shaped our thinking and being? To oppose western systems of knowledge that have been violently implanted in our current and past self(ves)?
