    • Synopsis
    • What if your gender was constantly changing depending on who you surround yourself with? 'Flux' is an app that invites you to see our society through a new norm. In this thought-experiment gender isn’t defined by our biology. Everyone contains a fluid spectrum of femininity and masculinity that changes with every encounter. Sit down in front of your computer and step into 'Flux'. Meet the people who live there. Discover how you see others and yourself. Welcome to 'Flux'. This interactive documentary was originally inspired by Ursula Le Guin's science fiction novel 'The Left Hand of Darkness' (1969) in which a stranger arrives on a planet where the inhabitants have no gender, they only assume one when they are fertile. Normally 'Flux' is played on tablets in an installation, but for the online edition of CPH:DOX we have made an exclusive, time-limited, downloadable app for computers. Enjoy!
      !NB!. 'Flux' is an application for both Windows and macOs. Duration: 15-90 min. Languages: English, Danish, Mandarin / Subtitles: English. You download the application for 'Flux' by using this link: https://fil.email/1sDcntVm. The application can be played until April 5th 2020.
