    Abstract:
    Trans Technology is an exhibit of technological art and artifacts that engage in trans, queer and feminist projects that help to trans (to use the word as a verb: spanning; interrogating; crossing; fusing) conceptions of the heterosexual matrix in technology. We are interested in the contributions of trans, queer, and feminist studies on technology, but in particular on the ways that transgender studies has approached (as Susan Stryker identifies it in the introduction to the Transgender Studies Reader) the recent “sea change in the academic study of gender, sex, sexuality, identity, desire, and embodiment” and the attendant address of trans studies’ “relationships with prior gay, lesbian, and feminist scholarship” (2). In the field commonly referred to as feminist science studies, recent attention has been placed on the modifier trans as it applies not only to gender but humanness, specieshood, and nationality. With artists of all gender identities, the focus of objects in the exhibit is on interventions in the heterosexual matrix, new gendered circuits of culture, self, and belonging.
