As a poet & interdisciplinary artist, my body of work involves experimenting with the fluidity of languages, forms and meanings. I employ wordplay and formplay for a polysemic, fully embodied understanding of text within itself and as a social practice. My work excavates and incorporates various etymologies, histories and myths, including from my background as a Afro-Caribbean-American writer, to create an environment for multilayered interpretation and interrogation of the self as a singular, static entity. Additionally, I use visual, mixed media and book arts to provide alternative expressions for this exploration. The purpose of my work is to create my own sacred text as a person in a black body.
