The city of Houston and IKE Smart City have launched innovative and interactive DIgital Kioks in Houston. A ribbon cutting marks the launch of a City-wide initiative to build smart city infrastructure that enhances the pedestrian experience for residents and visitors, while adding vibrancy to Houston’s urban landscape. The kioks have many features including a public art exhibitions. Karen Navarro is one of two Houston-based artists featured. The works by Karen Navarro are part of two different ongoing series, “América Utópica,” a demographic portrait of America based on 2043 census prediction, and “The Constructed Self,” a collection of unconventional portraits, united by themes of identity, diversity, and the complexities of representation for historically marginalized identities.
