game Art: Deconstructing Gender, 2006


Deconstructing Gender* is a collaboration I am currently working on with my Dad, Dr. Frank Ritchel Ames, based on the "10 question gender game" from the book Gender: An Ethnomethodological Approach by Suzanne J. Kessler & Wendy McKenna.

          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.

Constructing Gender [Part Two]

Constructing Gender will be the next in the series which will construct a composite image of a gendered person based on traits and features chosen by the viewer.
