Ritu Ghiya
Make New Memes: state(s) of publishing and play
Event Description: 
When in-person events were canceled indefinitely last year, designers, developers, and self-taught hybrids were tasked to churn out digital versions at a rapid pace. And, as we wondered how digital projects could be feasible, connective, and—maybe, most importantly—more fun, online publishing was evolving. Join artist Ritu Ghiya as she touches on the ecosystems of the internet within frameworks of DIY art and publishing (TikTok and “viewing rooms” included), as well as her thoughts on web work as a complicated straddle between digital art and commissioned design.
Ritu Ghiya (https://www.r-i-t-u.com)​ is an artist who works as a designer and web developer. Her digital works involve retrieving and archiving personal and collective ephemera—in an attempt to channel the serendipity of the offline world. Most recently, she has collaborated with Printed Matter, Tom of Finland foundation, Wendy’s Subway, and lucky risograph on designing + developing digital projects.
