Holden Holcombe’s ‘This Is How It Feels’ – PhD exhibition, School of Art, 22/11/2018 – 08/02/2019

HOLDENH_webThis Is How It Feels explores the intimate stories of eighteen transgender men and their journeys of transition from female-to-male. Holcombe uses new media art techniques, including augmented reality, to give audience members a glimpse of the FTM transgender experience through their own perspective. The exhibition features manipulated QR (quick-response) codes that explore the relationship between the lived experiences of the transgender man and the fabricated world of social media. These codes, in turn, ask audience members to participate in a new context of social media, both inside and out of the gallery space.

Devices will be provided at the exhibition, but audience members who wish to engage on a deeper level are encouraged to bring their own devices with SNAPCHAT downloaded.
