This talk will cover the relationship between visibility politics and trans liberation with a focus on how technologies of visualization (facial recognition, government IDs, body scanners and etc.) fail to comprehend trans bodies and the threat this failure possesses to trans livelihood. This will be explored through the lens of the artist’s previous artwork and ongoing interactive art project Landmarks.
