DH Lunch Meetup for Grad Students @ MSU Main Library, Make Central (2nd Floor West) | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

This is a monthly gathering for graduate students who are doing or interested in digital humanities. Anyone is welcome to join once or regularly. We will start with one grad student sharing informally about their work, whether in the classroom or in research. After about 15 minutes, then the rest of the time will be left to the group to share their work, discuss recent or upcoming conferences, and/or talk about the field and MSU DH generally.

There will be soda and sandwiches provided. This gathering is meant to be informal, so even if you can only stop by for a few minutes, feel free to do so!

Artist Statement

At its core, my work examines identity and social constructs within society through the language of abstraction. Does the individual form society, or does society form the individual? What constitutes identity and the values of society; and ultimately determines who one is? What is the true representation of ‘self’; is it physical or digital? Is meaning gained or lost through these multiple representations?

My process is heavily influenced by my experience in construction and demolition. I use the grid as a surrogate for humanity and social structures. The grid has a power to harness a multiplicity of identities and existences in various stages of completion. Through these multiple modes of representation, I am not just questioning what makes something complete or incomplete, but what dictates the standard by which it is judged.
