Hankies 4 Pansies is a playful introduction to the hanky code, a queer semiotic code that utilises coloured bandanas to indicate sexual preferences.
The traditional paisley patterns on bandanas are replaced with floral patterns that ambiguously decode the sexual acts that the colours refer to.
The project arose out of an interest in the significance of online and offline queer community and sexuality in light of increased internet censorship.
