COLOURNEXT 2013 TREND STORY . NARRATIVE INSTALLATION

Gender Blender

'Gender Blender' reflects on today's take on gender identity. The theme suggests that society is more accepting of what was earlier considered taboo – distinct gender identities are blurred, gender expressions are now androgynous.

We conceptualized a ramp that becomes the stage for exhibiting one's identity depicted through abstracted and androgynous images of individuals who are experimenting and expressing themselves without being tied down by color, form, material attributed to gender identification – blurring the typical gender expressions. 
There are complex geometric structures made from a polyhedron module to establish that identities can be experienced as just facets or as a whole. The audience could see illustrations of androgynous figures in their entirety on the complex structure from specific vantage points while the distorted views of these same illustrations along with theme colors could be  seen from other angles. The fabrics displayed celebration through etched human figures as audience in the backdrop to the ramp. The mirror at the end of the installation accentuated the length of the installation.
