We can learn a lot about who we are by the juxtaposition of who we are not. Working in an interdisciplinary environment has resulted in some interesting new collaborations. Most recently I produced a video designed to open a university campus dialogue on race and racism. The juxtopositions of white and black are beautiful, awkward, imperfect which is what makes the tool so effective in getting the conversation started.
Last year's Junkanoo project with dancer/choreographer, A'Keitha Carey and graphic artist, John Jennings yielded an interesting study of visual linguistic translations and juxtaposition as well. Taking one art form and translating it to another and then another and so on. Currently I am working on experimenting with other forms of movement to see if the photographic distillation results in significantly different line forms and personality.
My paper dolls series is an ongoing dialogue documenting the many labels we carry which when externally and internally applied inform who we are , how we converse with the world around us, and how that world empowers or imprisons us. The collages are often autobiographical in nature.
So I welcome you to a portfolio that has many juxtapositions in medium and content which I invite you to explore.
