Landmarks is an exploration of the ways artificial intelligence, and specifically facial recognition, fails to comprehend trans bodies (misgendering) and the threat this failure possesses to trans livelihoods as these technologies become increasingly integrated into our daily lives.

The project takes the form of a website under constant construction and revision and will be open for viewing and engagement as it grows and takes on new forms, content, and ideas. The intention in doing so is to invite the viewers into the act of coding and building a website and to resist a static form. This constant revision/evolution can also be understood as a durational performance art through the medium of code.
