Participants are invited to disrupt the fabric of public space one small action at a time. Playing cards with simple logical operators provide an in point for deconstructing the performance of identity. IF/ELSE pairings reflect the unnatural binaries imposed on bodies in order to uphold constructs of gender, race, or heteronormative dominance. The game of algorithmic play primes viewers for an extended practice of resistance.
