Hi, I’m Meghna.

I like Systems.

I love People.

In work and in life, I try not to get the two things confused. I believe that technology is equally capable of fulfilling and frustrating human needs and that being thoughtful and compassionate is what can make the difference.

About The Project

Dust,Dust is an interactive web-narrative I made during a fellowship at the Recurse Center in NYC in Fall 2019. I designed and built it using p5.js.

It was an exercise in visual storytelling inspired by Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics and my love of typography. All the visuals in it are built out of type.

About The Project

"Systems generate patterns. They’re like a secret spine beneath the world lending form and shape."

This book & website are a collection of data-paintings I made in the six months after turning 27. I was interested in:
  1. 1. How to represent data in a meaningful and aesthetic form

  2. 2. How to represent data that was personal, biased, and deliberately vague.
My data was not taken from tracking-analytics or wearables, but from memories, conversations, and personal-beliefs. The fuzziness is inherent.
