By exploring personal issues through a scientific lens, Stamm hopes to not only better understand his own struggles with sexuality, gender, and masculinity, but to also question preconceived societal norms. Currently he lives in Portland, Maine. To see more of his work, visit cargocollective.com/tdstammart.
