Rectifying New Digital Record

AI Book art
2023 Art in the Libraries Graduate Student Exhibit Awardee, Qazi Arka Rahman, Doctoral Candidate, WVU English
WVU Downtown Library Graduate Commons, Fall 2023
Program: Wednesday, December 6, 4pm, Graduate Commons and Room 136

The exhibit will be a digital art that showcases how real-world inequalities transpire in the world of web. It highlights an issue of substantial social impact – the extent of influence of language & print texts on the digital domain and the need for multilingual collaboration between ‘hypercentral’ language (English) and non-central languages (such as Bangla). The visualization is made to be like an art, rather than data charts, to evoke emotional responses. It operates with the logic that sustainable and effective change requires emotional engagement from individuals and communities.
