Art Statement Revised: No hoity toity.

Andro Gyno is a short video that explodes the notion of gender as a static category. By presenting an androgynous body accessorized with objects that take on masculine, feminine or gender blended characteristics depending upon how they are arranged on the body, the video asks the viewer to imagine gender as an expression one adopts, rather than a category prescribed by anatomy and chromosomes.

p.s. This is a special shout out to Liv and Heidi and a reminder that I'm not a full on academic-speak nuthead.
