Strangers meet through dating apps, websites or random hook ups at the supermarket. They couple in cars, hotel rooms and anonymous apartments. They f*ck furiously, fulfilling perceived physical desires and needs in one another – the need to forget themselves, feel, control or submit.

A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…Read More
