Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

by Lundy, Amber Michelle, M.F.A., University of California, San Diego, 2014, 5; 1557625
Abstract (Summary)

An overview of transmedia experiments in which the body and experience is shown dematerialized through character play and reconfigured, into multiple consumable and interactive gestures of isolated fetishization or form. By questioning gender assumptions within secure networks of policy driven performative expectation, form is made. Investigating the values that drive fetishization and form significance in direct violation of accepted data sets, this work leverages intersectional data or generative power, towards solutions requested by the cyborg or humyn condition of bondage to technologized power.
