Middle Passage Sojourner | Digital Collage | 2016

In this body of photo collage works, I depict myself as the Middle Passage sojourner communing with the ancestral bones. Employing the aesthetic mode of collage, I alter the photographs by inserting a layer of archival photographic material, suspended in the inscrutable space of indigo and cerulean blue. In this study, I index memory as a fluid imprint upon the timeless realm of the ocean, gesturing simultaneously toward Jacques Derrida’s hauntology and Suzanne Césaire’s readiness for the marvellous.
