The Gender Anarchy Project: an installation that intervenes in public space to break down assumptions of gender. From the web site: “The site documents an art project implemented by Amelia Marzec, an MFA candidate in the Design and Technology program at Parsons School of Design in NYC. The essence of the project is a small screen that displays a traditional bathroom door man or woman caricature that morphs into some combination of the two caricatures as someone passes within view of an electric eye over the door. The stated purpose of the project, which is installed on the bathroom door of a gallery in NYC, is to: "[give] the viewer the experience that a transgendered person may find themselves in every day: unsure of which bathroom to use, because their body and mind are not represented by the iconography on the door.”
