What is a Line? Interdisciplinary Research Exhibit Highlights Culture, Craft, and Computation Possibilities
Vernelle A.A. Noel can connect culture, cognition, and computing with lines.
A computational design scholar, architect, and artist, Noel is the curator of the Graham Foundation-funded exhibit Design and Making in the Trinidad Carnival: Histories, Re-imaginations, and Speculations of Computational Design Futures.
The exhibition showcases Noel’s investigations and re-conceptualizations of the craft of wire-bending in the Trinidad Carnival. It also answers the interdisciplinary question, “What is a line?” through traditional and new expressions.
And after a walk through this exhibit, you will never look at a line the same way again. The lines Noel curated will be especially poignant during Trinidad and Tobago’s Carnival, which happens February 20 and 21 this year.
Design and Making in the Trinidad Carnival: Histories, Re-imaginations, and Speculations of Computational Design Futures is on display at the Price Gilbert Library Gallery (Georgia Tech Library's first-floor gallery) through February 28, 2023.
