Cristina Dezi is an interdisciplinary artist and designer. Through a feminist critique she experiments on biomateriality and wearables by intersecting textile research, new media, sound design, biohacking and technology. She got a degree in Fashion Design and Textile and New Technologies and a master degree in Experimental Animation. Her research and design move in the field of sextech, queer ecologies, witchery rituals, cyber trans-feminism and erotic cinema.
“From another perspective, a cyborg world might be about lived social and bodily realities in which people are not afraid of their joint kinship with animals and machines, not afraid of permanently partial identities and contradictory standpoints.”
–(295, A Cyborg Manifesto: Science, Technology, and Socialist-Feminism in the Late Twentieth Century" di Donna Haraway)
My project research focuses on The body of posthuman as feminist discourse: the cyborg figure as a symbol of post‐gender society. Subversion, queerness and dissent have only been silenced, The aim is to recode the language around sexualities and create a new one, prototyping new identities, new shapes. Prosthetics have the potential to form an integral part of some speculations about the body surface, the psyche, and the internal and external limits of the body, and in general they cause an intimate disturbance to the stability of a lasting body self and induce a sense of intrinsic hybridity. The idea is to create erotic-tech artifacts and sexual prostheses that could blur the boundaries between organic and artificial, human and non-human, materialistic and intangible, high and low, male and female, or black and white. Create a discourse in transformation, through natural materiality and biotechnologies, narrated as a performing interactive film, that could open a dialogue about new shapeless forms and undefined identities.
