Annie Meyer


My practice is a proposal for nonbinary objecthood. I am interested in how the human construct of gender is recapitulated throughout built environments. I consider how human bodies are oriented and physically altered through interactions with the designed world. How do the objects we shape, in turn, shape us? How are we, by extension, arranged by the designers of these objects? In my work, I offer expanded ways of thinking about body, gender, and self. I create objects that hold multiple orientations. Fluidity is activated through interactivity. Both solitary ways of being, and new ways of holding one another, are reimagined.
