The Molecular
Queering Agency 

Mary Maggic, 2017

#Under His AI 

We people are fluid beings, something artificial intelligence (AI) tends to forget. We cover a broad range of ever-changing identities: the stable body is something of the past. The non-binary, Chinese-American artist Mary Maggic presents a fictional service that gently guides you in the process of queering. Participants offer up their own urine for hormones to be extracted, while simultaneously inhaling the hormones of previous users. A scary thought maybe, but why is that? This service encourages you to let go of eco-heteronormative limits, so we can form a collective resistance against AI pigeonholing.
