Connecting Arts and Technology with Marlena Compton

Connecting Arts and Technology with Marlena Compton

Published: May 2nd, 2021

I was one of the hosts lucky enough to welcome the brilliant and insightful Marlena Compton to the Greater than Code podcast episode 236.

Marlena’s superpower is an bringing the arts to tech.

Marlena discussed the application of sketching, drawing, crafting, zines, other forms of art to our work as technologists. We made some important connections between the use of art (or lack thereof) and the colonialist culture that pervades the tech industry.

You can find out more about Marlena at the Appear Works website where you can also find out about the “Let’s Sketch Tech!” community.
