End of Gender?
17 November, 2018 - 18 November, 2018
As traditionally ‘male’ and ‘female’ roles rapidly change in society, are we heading for a future where gender no longer matters? This event invites you to put on a mixed reality headset and interact with a genderqueer wardrobe where the possibilities of gender are endless.
Through the Microsoft HoloLens, every item in the wardrobe tells a story that entices you to touch, explore and play. You’ll hear how nonbinary people combine or reject traditional gender expectations through everyday expressions in clothing or cosmetics. After interacting with the wardrobe, you are invited to discuss where you think our definitions of gender are heading.
This is an active prototype of an interactive, immersive media project from Rob Eagle, a PhD research student at the University of the West of England.
This drop-in event will take place between 11:00am and 5:00pm on Saturday 17 November and Sunday 18 November.
