Hi! I’m Lily.

I’m from Toronto, Canada and this is my third semester in the MA in Media Studies program at the New School.

I did my undergraduate degree at McGill University in Montreal. My background is in Art History. I’ve worked at several Canadian art galleries and also in film production at Radke Film Group and Soft Citizen in Toronto.

My focus in the program is Design but I am interested and open to a diverse array of fields and discourses, especially in regards to local and global DIY initiatives.

Most of my personal DIY projects are arts & crafts or food related. Some DIY activities that I enjoy include: creating origami cranes and pinwheels, inventing new recipes in the kitchen, thinking up unique interactive drawing games, drafting my own typography and painting gifts for friends. Lately, I have taken up knitting as my newest DIY hobby. Contrary to the New York dining norm, my most memorable evenings involve weekly cooking adventures with friends, where we experiment with new ingredients and veer from traditional recipes in the kitchen.

This past summer, I worked at the Institute of Network Cultures in Amsterdam on the ‘Out of Ink’ Project, where I researched the changes occurring in the publishing world and the differences and implications of print vs. digital publishing. The initiative views publishing as more than just an avenue of communication but also as a way to challenge legal, technical and social standards embedded in intellectual property, scholarly communication, and notions of authorship. One of our motives in this project is to act as an organized facilitator of DIY publishing practices, to further professionalize them and provide a model for others.

I’m really excited about this class…I think we should all delve into as many DIY NY projects as possible this year.

Don’t know why, but the default blue just bugs me for some reason.And this is a silly little thing, but when I heard you say it I kinda went Oo! Time to unleash my inner pronunciation nazi. . . . Genie = English transliteration of the Arabic D’jinni. Ergo . D’jinn is pronounced either jean or jin the D is more or less silent Sorry . couldn’t help myself
