馬傑偉(香港中文大學新聞及傳播學院教授):這是一部很有感染力和現場感的視覺民族誌……作者細緻與敏感的描述讓人如臨現場……細節的描述讓讀者逐步修正獵奇印象而進入跨性別人士與cosplayer的生活日程,並打開了再認識、再反思的門徑……這本書聚焦於視覺/身體/身份的議題,對理解今天各種廣泛的身體政治尤其重要。

 

江紹祺(香港大學社會學系助理教授):香港需要Katrien。這不僅僅因為她善於利用頗具刺激性和爭議性的材料作為教育工具幫助學生們認識和理解數碼網絡、媒體技術、藝術與審查,更是由於她的作品為學術界探索指出新的方向……以極富創意的影音記錄挑戰傳統的研究方法擴充了我們對於不可能疆域的想像……

本書是一個西方學者在東亞地區對流行藝術和動漫文化作深​入探索的旅行手記……

Travis, S. K. Kong (Assistant Professor, Department of Sociology, HKU): “Hong Kong needs Katrien. Not just due to the fact that she is famous in using provocative and controversial materials as a tool of pedagogy in helping students understand digital networks, media technologies, arts and censorship but also because of the fact that her work brings a new direction to academic endeavour… She always challenges conventional research methodology with creative and audiovisual documentation, blurs academic disciplines with artistic creation, and expands our imaginations of the impossible…
