Un/tied Shoes

Interactive Media - Presented as an online shoe company, this interactive website is actually a first-person account of self-actualization in disguise. Follow along on the story of Evie, who never quite felt like a girl or a boy. Using the online shopping experience, Evie’s story underscores the hardships many non-binary and transgender people face when trying to reflect their gender identity in their outward appearance, and calls into question the deep-rooted social codes that determine who can wear what in our society.

Part of the Perspectives exhibition for immersive storytelling, featuring Interactive Media, Virtual Reality, and more.
