Digital Thesis Projects
(These projects are in progress, and will go live on May 20)
- Colby adapted a segment of David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest into a screenplay. She then directed and starred in the resulting short film. To view a rough cut of the film and see Colby’s commentary on the project, visit Kate: A Film Based on David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest.
- Kerishma developed an interactive map based on two characters from George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, tracking the movements of Daenerys Targaryen and Cersei Lannister through Westeros, Essos, and parts as-yet-unknown. To follow these characters on their travels, visit Power is Power.
- Laura staged, photographed, and then manipulated a series of creative self-portraits based on the short stories of Edgar Allan Poe and the films of Alfred Hitchcock. To see her photographs in context, visit The Murderous Male Gaze.
