Blunt Guts

Working with blunt guts is an attempt to prevent wastefulness. Creating dreads or bonsai trees as a way of identifying not only myself in other nonsentient materials, but also to explore the idiosyncrasies of American garbage.

regimen

Regimen is a  video performance showing my daily routine for picking out & moisturizing my hair. It’s meant to be projected concurrently with several other videos in my regimen series. Possibly overlapping each other.

found stone from Marcus Garvey Park, medical gauze, permanent marker, 2016-17

 

This found object sculpture is an attempt to articulate the gentrification & destruction of culture that comes with it. This is happening rapidly all over New York City. Using native objects from the area is a way of me showing respect & empathizing with those who visit & enjoy the park while they still can.

Installed somewhere in Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem.
