Anne Burdick – Trina: A Design Fiction for the Digital Humanities.

  • This event has concluded.
  • Free Admission. RSVP essential.



Presented by the School of Design and UTS ART in association with Hello World: Code and Design curated by Aaron Seymour at UTS Gallery.


Building 6, Level 3, Room 22
702-730 Harris Street


Trina uses design and fiction to investigate the future of Humanities research and to question the worlds made possible by the use of emerging technologies for reading and writing. In this unusual show-and-tell (PechaKucha meets La Jetée), the audience follows Trina, an unemployed literary scholar who creates virtual “n-dimensional knowledge objects” alone in her RV in the desert. Through Trina’s augmented eyes we see the software-mediated daily life within which the mystery of a cryptic, typewritten document unfolds.
Trina is conceived and produced by designer Anne Burdick (Digital_Humanities, Writing Machines) in collaboration with writer Janet Sarbanes (Army of One, The Protester Has Been Released), with an electronic soundtrack by sound artist Casey Anderson. Anne Burdick is Professor of Visual Communication in the Faculty of Design, Architecture, and Building at UTS.
