Dominicanas | Identity Project

In my discomfort of how history is presented in school, this project opens the door to discovering Dominican women, other than the three we repeat by memory since second grade. Dominicanas is a digital archive that invites the users to share the stories and experiences of women that have impacted their world. This collective archive with overlapping stories helps us to better define our Dominican culture today. I hope to highlight a side of our community that is normally not shown in history and to empower younger girls through these examples.

This project followed my curiosity in psychogeography and understanding the Dominican visual identity. An exploration of how we can learn, know, and remember, and how we can encapsulate different voices without clashing them in a single platform.
