By exploring the poetics of quotidian Black life, the regularity, ubiquity, and simplicity, I attempt to emphasize gestural dialectics of quiet domesticity and community building. For me, this humor, love, strife, and care, highlights the familiar worlds I strive to convey. I would offer this embrace as a refusal of subjugation and the outside gaze.
I dwell in both immutable Black culture and the impermanence of its physical manifestations. The aesthetic and narrative choices I am making hinge on things that may be unseeable or veiled. I am trying to grasp them myself and hopefully offer a specific tangible vibration.
