Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Sutton-Fosman, Casper

This project couples the subject of the haunted house and the subject of the trans, disabled body as resistant to normative nuclear family structures. Looking with aesthetic structures of layering/transparency, tangling/untangling, and hiding/revealing, the haunting of the domestic space becomes a lens through which to examine gender, visibility, memory, and care. Using my own non-linear experience of selfhood through gender transition, traumatic memory, and physical relationality to space, I attempt to recontextualize uncertainty and mutability as feelings worth embracing. This work consists of a non-linear written essay (this document) and FLICKERS, FRAGMENTS, a multi-media installation mixing old/new and analog/digital methods of creation.
