The public artwork Crochet Coral Reef and the ecocatastrophe of coral erosion are a prompt in this essay to examine the geometric shapes and patterns of harm for transgender life. Connecting the handmade labor of making identity to markets of environmental crisis, the essay conceptualizes how diverse bodies of land, water, animals, and flesh shape the administration of survival, distribution of life, political economy, and our biosocial landscape of sex and gender.
