I write, make things, and make performances that address a Black queer relationship to time. I privilege the circle, which is to say memory and forgetfulness. My work illuminates the multi-lingual and transtemporal conversations between plant, animal, human, and non-material bodies which can announce a thing’s presence before its arrival and after its evacuation. Absence and exhaustion figure centrally in my work -- particularly as it relates to Black people, refugees, and the dead. All in all, I make work exploring a how a space is formed by its bodies.
