“I stood on the border, stood on the edge and claimed it as central and let the rest of the world move over to where I was.”
Toni Morrison (1993)
Through my creative practice I work to decipher and conserve oral histories and disappearing knowledge systems from across the Continent, striving for their continuation into the digital future. Design is ultimately a mechanism of self-affirmation. A method of driving preferable futures and worldviews. And as Blackness has been historically banished to the margins, the realms of the exotic, the unknown and unknowable, the politics of design and space making emboldens us to reinforce Black subjectivity and claim uncharted territories asserting and centering ourselves in multiple futures.
