Inspired by early modern Chinese lyrical poetry and art, this house model was designed and built from scratch using the resources in the JX3 game. The model seeks to blend nature and the arts. You can see trees, blossoms, and a little river around our house. You can also enjoy chess, Guqin, paintings, calligraphy, liquor and tea. It was designed by Wang Tian and Dong Ke to inspire inner tranquility and peace.

This is a digital gallery exhibiting the best class projects from the Digital Humanities Minor at the Singapore University of Technology and Design. Our Minor program serves as a creative space in which computer scientists, engineers and architects use their computational skills to deepen their understanding of human culture. In every course in the Minor our students are required to apply their technical learning in original research projects in the humanities. The most innovative and successful project each year is awarded our Digital Humanities Prize.
Each year our faculty select an outstanding student project to be awarded our Digital Humanities Prize. This award recognises projects that demonstrate intellectual ambition, creativity and innovation, and a genuine, original contribution to humanities research.
We are pleased to announce Anaqi Pek and Wan Kwong Chen Ian as winners of our 2020 Digital Humanities Prize.
As part of Dr. Rhema Hokama’s Lyric Poetry class, Ian and Anaqi carried out an innovative research project, “Twitter Poets: Sonnets on the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election”, that took tweets about the 2020 election and used machine learning-based tools to generate poems that were meant to distill the thoughts and feelings of Twitter users about events during the campaign.
“Twitter Poets” stood out as a good Digital Humanities project as it used computational methods to ask wider, humanistic questions about the scope of poetry as an artistic genre and, at the same time, it playfully uses poetry to think about data modelling. You can read their project report on our blog.
The prize winners for 2021 will be announced at the end of February 2022.
