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

Follow-up 5. German Talk
it was great seeing you yesterday, and I hope you enjoyed the little ‘pop-up’- exhibition. While I was giving the presentation, I actually noticed some mistakes that I had made in the text. I hope I found them all now. Below, you find the corrected version.
As this talk was different from the usual format, I also include some photos; some of those who couldn’t attend last night were curious about what would be on show. Apologies for the bad quality of the images; considering that I work at the School of Art, I should’ve borrowed a proper camera rather than make do with my inadequate mobile phone….
The next talk will be on the 7th of November and in connection with one of the forthcoming exhibitions in our galleries. I’ll publish more information closer to the time in the usual places.
I always hesitate to take personal data of people, but if you would like to receive emails about future ‘German Talks’ (and ‘French Talks’, if you like), you’re very welcome to email me your email address on email@example.com and I’ll keep you updated.
Best wishes, und bis bald,
