"Return of the Super Maria Sisters is an experimental fiction novel that follows two female characters, Maria and Luisa, through their journey of posthuman-ness. The text explores the various contemporary theories of Donna Haraway, Rosi Braidotti, and N. Katherine Hayles through an architectural narrative infrastructure. The two characters encounter various external digital bodies throughout their journey that make them question their own three-dimensional selves - their gender, physicality, and, most importantly, their consciousness. With influences from Deleuze and Guattari, Kafka, and eastern philosophies, Maria and Luisa redefine the posthuman consciousness for contemporary beings." — The Author
