In Memento Vitae, McKenzie borrows from the practice of mourning jewelry to create a set of adornments that pay tribute to three faltering habitats: forests, coral reefs, and glaciers. Through the intimate act of donning each piece, users redefine their relationship with damaged ecosystems, channeling ecological grief into a tactile object while celebrating its beauty.
Close isn’t Home is a digital art platform created to dissect cross-culturalism, generational heritage, and identity. The website depicts transcendental environments, embodying digital intangibility in relation to physical space and nostalgia. Grace Kwon and Samantha Vassor emphasize upon the digital empathy by connecting diasporas in a responsive forum.

This piece invites you to join in a collaborative musical experience. These instruments (using analog circuitry and coded micro-controllers) are intuitive to play and remove the fear of failure. Through their ease of use, they remove barriers, dispelling the notion that one must be musically-inclined to create music.
