Secretive Density is an exploration of the clouding effects of transformative identities expressed via digital print media. Accessing and deploying soft aesthetics as a trans artist, the explosion and distortion of floral imagery reveals that behind the inferred illegibility of queer existences is a contemporary re-acquaintance with the beyond. Unsettling, undefined, and powerful in its re-purposing of known images, this beyond posits a view of the queer world as a shifting and uncertain one, a potential that cannot be ignored and which openly contests everything.
