Subject Mutations in the notion of gender cause us to question both the existing dichotomy between male and female, and the relevance of our binary system in the future. Why? If gender becomes fluid, a lot of things in society will (have to) appear, and function, in a different way. How do I intend to explore my subject? Based on six different, though related developments in the fields of biology, science, society and technology, a future scenario can be made. This will be the starting point for the design proposal. What do I want to accomplish with my research and design proposals? With the design I want to allow more flexibility and individuality in the visualisation of human relationships and commitments, by updating an existing symbol for the future scenario.
