Silence is in the Streets: An interview with Christin Washington

Christin Washington is a force. Her eloquence on the complexities of silence left me with a lot on my mind’s plate. As a 5collDH fellow for the year 2016/17, her project was on the theorization and the digitization of Black Silence. Using Black Brooklyn as a lens, she was able to analyze and read the absences. It takes courage and clarity to understand that because things are silent does not mean that they do not exist. For her project Dare … Read More

New Ways of Seeing: An Interview with Emily Lankiewicz

Emily Lankiewicz would like us to see old things in new ways. She recently graduated from Mount Holyoke college as an Art History major and a 5CollDH fellow. Her project, aptly titled “New Ways of Seeing,” focuses on ancient art objects and pieces. A lot of these “ancient works” were once everyday objects, used to facilitate the everyday interactions between ordinary people: Coins exchanged for goods, lamps used to see when the sun is nowhere to be found, and jugs, used to store … Read More

Can you Really Paint With All the Colours of the Wind? : Interview with Michelle ‘Misha’ Oraa Ali, creator of MuSyC

She has been working on her software app, MuSyC (Music, Synesthesia, Color), which is a music to colour synesthesia simulator that takes auditory stimulus input and presents real time visual feedback. In itself, the project “MuSyC” is tremendously exciting. Yet, in speaking … Read More
