NeuroSpeculative AfroFeminism: Collaboration at the Crossroads of Gender, Race & Tech
Thursday, March 22, 4-6pm
Communication Dept. Studio, Garey Hall
Join us for a demo talk by Ashley Baccus-Clark, a Brooklyn-based Molecular & Cellular Biologist and multidisciplinary artist who uses new media and storytelling to explore themes of deep learning, cognition, memory, race, trauma, and systems of belief. She is the Director of Research at Hyphen-Labs, an international team of women of color creating at the intersection of technology, art, science, and the future. Through their NeuroSpeculative AfroFeminism project, Hyphen-Labs strives to create meaningful and engaging ways to explore emotional, human-centered and speculative design, placing collective needs and experience at the center of evolving narratives.
