Coming April 2018.
No in Disguise is the continuation of over a year of research into repurposing online platforms to explore the role of power and permissions in male sexual identity.
The project manifests as a procedurally generated video installation that features men reading and responding to transcripts of conversations by the artists with dating app users who expressed harmful attitudes toward women. It responds to the cultural anxiety over the shifting dominant narrative about gender and power dynamics in the United States, where critical responses to the #MeToo movement have argued that the harassment of women is merely the product of a deviant male minority. The voices and physical features of the readers in the video are deconstructed and recombined into a patchwork of faces that represent a male identity that is simultaneously specific and general. Every viewing presents a new series of faces.
