### This Machine Kills Trans-Exclusionary Radical Fucks
This work comes out of my current practice exploring my trans identity, process of transition, and how I have to brace myself every day against a world that remains uncertain about trans people, sometimes violently so.
I’ve compressed the video and sound to the edges of where it feels viable, but I like how the crushing gives a re-reproduced standard, copied beyond and watched on repeat. It’s almost degraded and analogue, and suits, for me anyway, the closeness of the Careful Network project, like something handed down, passed along; lossy and imperfect.
