“Summing All the Parts” is an investigation into gender as it relates to queer people. For the work I put out a call to queer identifying individuals in Portland who wanted to be a part of the work. I then documented their stories and ideas about gender and how it affects their lives, and make photographs of them. Later I evaluated each person according to an assessment I crafted based on research into visual markers(biological/dress) that indicate masculinity and femininity. The assessment determined which color they would receive. Through this act playful aspects of gender performativity are explored along with the violent ramification of the gender binary.
