Techno Gender : ‘Pyramid Revealed By A Sandstorm’ 7.17mins by Raju Rage screened at Transitional States 2017-2018, Transitions Film Fest Berlin 2018 and Artists Film International 2019 is an audio-video sonic collage focusing on the emotional impact of hormones on the body through self-injecting, surveillance and sensation. Bridging the gap between science, health, politics and art, it questions the role of hormones in social determination of sex and gender, binary ideas of gender and sex; and the innate inequality created by separating people into sexes. Inspired by Preciado’s Testo Junkie, online testimonials and grassroots health activism, the video explores what it means to be an object/ subject as a racialized and gendered body.
