I am interested in humanizing technology through empathy. I have received the Young Artist Community Service grant (2006) and the New Media and Audio grant (2007) from the Washington, DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities to create "amahoro," a multi-lingual sound piece based about a Rwandan boy, which I later presented at TEDxPotomac (2010). I have collaborated with visual artist/interactive designer Ayodamola Okunseinde to create "huggy robot" (2011), a performance in which we wore suits with touch sensors that trigger the sound and video as we hug each other. We also collaborated at IDEO Cambridge on "mother tongue" (2015), in which we created and performed with empathic robots that were aimed at alleviating the human fear of the singularity. #CitizenArtist @sensoundspace

A small, heartfelt thank you for my dear friend, #Desi sister and creative collaborator, @reenaesmailcomposer (@_heyitsreena_) who is in DC right now for the #KennedyCenter #CitizenArtist summit so that I could be here in SoCal this weekend. This is from a solo violin arrangement of her piece, #TakeWhatYouNeed.

"My preoccupation with hospitality β€” with home and with what it means to be a host or guest β€” runs deep. I find myself talking a great deal about these things with people, artists in particular, who, like me, are urgently wondering about the responsibility of the individual citizen to perform diplomacy β€” to serve both the role of host by welcoming and the role of guest in traveling beyond β€œhome.” And who, like me, wrestle with the issue of representation as it connects to this question."
