deconstructing gender

Deconstructing Gender is a collaboration currently being worked on by Andrew Y Ames and Dr. Frank Ritchel Ames, based on the "10 question gender game."* This is the first in a series of digital works that deconstructs gender. It is a simple test that makes use of a 10 question format, but produces no definitive answer; it simply asks the viewer to decide on cultural expectations.

The next in the series will construct a composite image of a gendered person based on a form completed by the viewer. Stay tuned to for updates and progress.

* The "10 question gender game" first appeared in Gender: An Ethnomethodological Approach by Suzanne J. Kessler & Wendy McKenna
