Return of the Super Maria Sisters

Return of the Super Maria Sisters follows Maria and Luisa, two failed female video game characters who were shoved into oblivion . The mysterious Generator grants them a thirty-year upgrade into the contemporary and releases them into the world of Super Maria 3D World. Their evolution of various humanistic qualities, such as gender, physicality, race, and consciousness triggers their understanding that they are, nonetheless, post-human holograms in a virtual and textual world. The narrative explores the various contemporary theories of Donna Haraway, Rosi Braidotti, and N. Katherine Hayles through an architectural narrative infrastructure. With influences from Deleuze and Guattari, Kafka, and eastern philosophies, Maria and Luisa redefine the posthuman consciousness for contemporary beings.

The book is part of the graduate thesis installation: Furniture for the Maria Sisters.
