Spotlight on the Arts: Nina Ho ’16

On Feb. 10, Nina Ho ’16 and two other Holy Cross students received recognition awards at ArtsWorcester’s 12th annual College Show, which  exhibited the artwork of students from the Worcester-area colleges and universities.

In this reflection, Nina discusses her inspiration for her award-winning work:

“My Instalife,” matte paper book


“Social media has become an important part of our life. In a way, it has somewhat taken over how we make and store our memories. Instagram is a great example of how our memories have become digitalized. Therefore, through this work I wanted to transform my piece from 2-dimensional into 3-dimensional and from digital back to physical. I did this by using the photos I posted on my Instagram account and recreated that into a physical “photo album.”

 “My Instalife, was a final project I made for my Book Projects class, which I took last Fall. I was extremely surprised to have received this recognition. Everyone in the show did such a beautiful job and I had thought mine was too confusing, but I am very honored to have my work on display and share a space with such talented artists. The College Art Show is a great opportunity for student artists to not only allow the audience but also themselves to appreciate and enjoy their work.” – Nina Ho ’16
