»There is a becoming female on the way to becoming the kind of other that isnt human at all any more. Bug, cloud, drug, bird: all joined in a chorus in which all parts resonate together.« (McKenzie Wark)

We are the monsters. We are in constant transition, shapeshifting, from genders, to skills, to critter, to femmes, to cyborgs. The gap is our goal, the hole, the void. The disappearance. The Collective is an idea of hybrid creatures, flesh and the Phantasma of de-genderism. The itchy flesh, the gender tinnitus, the emotional mold.
We are many different Amazon queens, goddess, leaders, pathfinders, captains. With different skills we connect and share, with a language made out of many different abilities and prowesses. We step away from the old myth of the amazons, as wild women living in the forrest, having all abilities and freedom, which wasnt available for the women in the ancient Athens. A myth created by male gaze. We empower this old myth towards a new one. This new myth brings together the possibility of constant change, transition, transforming. Opening our bodies towards the Architecture and conquer it with our possibilities of adaptaion. As we are strangers to the others, we become our Future Self and bring the Revolution.
