AlieNation is an interactive installation piece that explores the female body with a focus on female genitalia. It asks the audience to imagine what it means to have a female body that is both objectified and controlled, desired and judged, politicized and shamed. As those of us with female genitalia fight for the right to decide how their bodies exist, circulate, and reproduce (or not), our upbringing in patriarchal systems relates our genitals to pain, shame, guilt, and sin. We are forced to grow up alienated from the very organ that can be a source of pleasure, comfort, and control.  By visually separating vaginas from their bodies, AlieNation asks the audience to reconsider the terms on which bodies with female genitalia are allowed to exist in our societies.
