From The Throat (between teeth and tongue) encapsulates the desire for an alternate, improved reality; its immersive quality allows strong parallels to be drawn between the digital realm and the physical world.
The virtual space presented depicts a concrete room with towering pillars, dividing walls and a concrete amphitheater. There is no ceiling, instead, a blue sky. The constructed room is filled with a variety of text which floats or appears out of walls. It is repetitive and overlapping, sometimes swaying, wriggling or vibrating– often illegible–stretching into the sky. This text describes body parts of hybridised entities, mainly throats in varied states of vocalisation, restriction or release. The text, and speech, is queer in that it is unrestricted in its expression, it is of the body – a messy and in-pieces body– non-binary in its form, form-less, body-less, shapeshifting and uncaptured.
This environment suggests patriarchy as an intrusive virtual filter dissolvable by queer text and speech. The hybrid entities embodied by the text and speech reject and destabilise the binary systems that maintain this intrusive structure, offering queerness as a clear threat to patriarchy and proposing a new outlook via the queer horizon.
