Marshall Cartwright is a senior at Gallatin, concentrating on Digital Sociology, New Media and Neuropsychology. Marshall’s studies revolve around the behavioral changes of the individual in relation to digital environments and architectures.
In Spring 2019, he participated in Cynthia Allen’s Practicum on Future Reality where he questioned the nature of what makes something real. Marshall’s colloquium is titled “Inflection: The Simulation and Feedback of Identity, Thought and Ideology in Digital Media.” In his virtual reality short film, SIMULA, he explores the possibility that our realities are not the most authentic. Viewers come face-to-face with “the creator” of their realities where they are challenged to remember where they came from.
