From the Caribbean to
Our Daily Meditation

Reflecting on movements such as Junkanoo in the Caribbean and diverse forms of storytelling, it is evident how costuming, music, and dance served as means to document past experiences. This has empowered me to reimagine contemporary issues related to race, class, and access through a more satirical and autobiographical approach.

How Do You Flash Your Lights?

Our ancestors in Jamaica paved the way for the integral vibrant culture that contemporary society is familiar with. The textures of the past facilitated acts of rebellion and reclamation of human dignity that the colonial era sought to suppress. Aligned with the ‘Flash Your Lights’ theme, my ancestors resonate through the stories I convey today, spanning from my paintings and drawings to the sonic timelines of music and poetry.
