Griffen Horsley is an MA student in York University and Toronto Metropolitan University’s joint program in Communication and Culture (2021-2023). He holds an HBASc in Anthropology with a minor in Psychology (2020) from Lakehead University. His MA thesis is a research creation project exploring abstract photo-scanography as a means of reconciling with the personal and political implications of grief. Examining sentimental objects and images, his project asks how academic research, art, and artifacts are haunted by social and cultural forces. With his focus on themes of affect and loss, Griffen is thrilled to be an MLC Research Fellow engaging MLC’s Telling COVID-19 Stories research project. His long-term plan is to work as an arts educator and researcher in museum, university, or library.
