About the project
The goal of the Invisible Being project is to create, collect and organize digital materials that contribute to the scholarship of contemporary Thai visual art and filmmaking. This project is an initiative of Otterbein University's Humanities Advisory Committee and is funded by the National Endowment of the Humanities. The curricular component of the project is tied to the Integrative Studies Program at Otterbein University and serves as a resource for students studying within the Creativity and Culture thread program.
Although this project is ongoing and not an exhaustive survey, the artists, curators and filmmakers were carefully chosen to reflect the diversity of cultural production happening in Thailand at the moment. If you are interested in contributing to the project by sharing a critical essay, review or other digital humanities scholarship, please contact
