"And insofar as many trans artists working in these media don’t have technical backgrounds, the work involves a certain amount of grappling, of wrestling with structures and limitations that we don’t always fully understand. To speak for myself, I don’t experience making games as an expression of mastery over a system of code, as a trained programmer might. Instead, it feels like a dialogue or sometimes like a shouting match. I have an idea of what I want to manifest, but getting there requires constant negotiation with an alien structure. This process mirrors the way many trans people talk about our bodies and experiences: wrestling with material conditions to produce something we can work with."
