Presented an ongoing version of the digital platform, View from the View, which was the capstone for my Critical Media Practice concentration. A View from the View is an annotated interactive collection of postcards (3000+) motivated by larger research questions into visual cultures, representations of tourism, and issues of mobility in Lebanon. I hope to publically launch the platform by June 2020.
This inaugural exhibition presents the culminating work of graduate students pursuing the Critical Media Practice secondary field (CMP) from Harvard University. CMP enables students to incorporate artistic practices into their research, acknowledging that some forms of inquiry can be more fruitfully pursued through visual, aural, tactile, performative, or interactive means than through text alone.
The exhibition comprises a cinema program of film, sound, and performance works and a gallery show presenting installations and interactive projects. All are capstone projects created by graduating students or recent alumni in tandem with their dissertations in a range of disciplines. The opening show was April 26th, 2019 in Cambridge, MA.
