I’ve had the opportunity to have several public conversations with Doireann O’Malley about their films Prototypes I: Quantum Leaps in Trans Semiotics through Psycho-Analytical Snail Serum and Prototypes II: The Institute for the Enrichment of Computer Aided Post Gendered Prototypes.
Prototypes explores new perspectives on trans identity through the lens of a post psycho-analytic, schizo-analytic methodology of rhizomatic consciousness, learning and quantum transformation. Constructed though moving images with bodies in gender transitions, affect and systems theory, 3D scanning, sound and voice. The methodology approaches the exploration of multiple subjectivities with Trans- protagonists through dream analysis & group psycho-analytic workshops, exploring the multi layered unconscious. Scenes produced by the characters in the films as starting points to explore the manifestation of gender beyond desire and the ego drives.
