PASS: Protocols for Alternative Sexuality and Sensibility

Protocols for Alternative Sexuality and Sensibility (PASS) is a wireless, networked system designed to function with a multidisciplinary description of a network in mind, incorporating conceptual implications and technical implementation of networking. PASS visibly tracks connections in public space based on the embodiment of protocols associated with sexual identity. These user-configured devices exchange information with other devices in order to uncover the often hidden interconnections created by the internalization of sexual identity. Sexual identity is represented by several alternative paradigms in addition to the culturally predicated homosexual/heterosexual binary.
