R. Luke Dubois is a professor in the department of technology, culture and society at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering.
The SITE Santa Fe art venue is highlighting word choices of past presidents in an exhibit that coincides with Donald Trump's first State of the Union address Tuesday. … Artist and teacher R. Luke DuBois created the word portraits a decade ago. Trump's provocative language has infused the project with new meaning. DuBois sees political discourse in 2018 as both frightening and an opportunity for artists. Another of his works involves a mechanical 1940s-era voting machine with levers for various human emotions and sentiments.
