How do digital technologies shape our identities? I have long been intrigued by critiques of othering through media, especially as it concerns the collapsing of marginalized peoples into a singular identity. In my project and presentation, I use a science fiction television show as a mode through which to explore an advanced technological version of this process. Art has always been an excellent medium through which to present accessible, radical ideas. The reading of my script, and the theory presented alongside it, interrogate the ways surveillance weighs upon our processes of identity formation and bolsters oppressive power dynamics.
