Christine Clark is a designer and web developer teaching in the Department of New Media at the University of Lethbridge on Blackfoot Territory. She is a descendant of prairie settlers and was raised in Cochrane, Alberta. Her research and creative practice are rooted in design collaborations that promote decolonization and environmental sustainability at local levels.
Christine received her MFA in New Media from the University of Lethbridge for which she completed a project-based thesis on the design of climate change information visualizations for her home province of Alberta. This work has since been adapted into a web app that is widely used by educators and researchers.
She is currently working on the Mootookakio'ssin research project, an international collaboration exploring how to provide access to Blackfoot items held in museums in Europe using digital technologies, like photogrammetry, RTI, and web-based interfaces.
