Stephanie Dinkins’ “Secret Garden” Nurtures Deep Stories and Deep Understanding

“Our stories, especially our deep stories, are the algorithms that instruct us how to be in the world.”
Stephanie Dinkins, on Secret Garden, her immersive web experience that premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The culmination of residency with Nokia Bell Labs Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.), Dinkins’ floral estate invites visitors to explore oral histories spanning generations of Black women. Contemplating this and other Dinkins works, writer Alex Estorick concludes “her ultimate achievement is to defeat epistemic violence by envisioning deep understanding.”
