Gender x Gender

Gender x Gender is an interactive installation that presents the participant with a multiple choice quiz interface. Society’s binary understanding of gender and gender stereotypes affects the development of people’s identity. The options that are given in the quiz have both ends of the spectrums of male and female stereotypes, such as pink being the correct female’s favourite colour. The quiz results subtly criticize those that are not a perfect match to their gender stereotype. All participants are slowly transformed into the iconic gender role models (Barbie & Ken).
