Jazmine Catasús
will give a Brown Bag Lunch presentation on Tuesday, February 15, at 12:15 pm. Her talk is entitled “Ritual of Ornament.”

Ritual of Ornament examines the role of ornamentation in building knowledge systems. This project delves into how we manipulate matter to enhance political power, to affirm identity, and to connect with the cosmos. Catasús is interested in the actions we take to include the decorative in our lives and how it functions in psychological and physical spaces.
