Melanie is an artist, organizer, and educator. As co-director of the School for Poetic Computation, and cofounder of Hex House, they strive to cultivate spaces of learning and feeling that encourage honesty, poetry and reconciliation for the ways we are shaped by intersecting systems of classification and power. Melanie uses hacking and performance to express the absurdities of these systems while revealing encoded ways they inform how we choose to live and what choices have been made for us. They have taught at NYU, Yale University and has shown work at the New Museum, the Queens Museum and elsewhere.
