my visual work isolates elements of nature and urban environments in relation to the social and political identities of Blackness. Still as Black Americans have made tremendous contributions to American history and culture, our lives are seen as disposal, and intentionally disregarded when we are not actively being used. My practice of using 35mm disposal film, paper, fabric, and other "disposable" material aims to draw connections of all forms when documenting existence In the midst of deterioration, domesticity, and isolation.

A short film for my final project in junior year art class that visualizes my aspiration to form a connection between nature, time, and blackness as an aesthetic and spirit. I wanted to showcase the power of continuity, love, and acceptance and put the audience in almost trance state. this film represents the duality and multidimensionality of my interests in music, visual art, and art history collating this with Sun Ra's "Space is the Place" by Sun Ra. This is the first film I've ever made and It Is personal to me and I directed, acted, and filmed with the help of my friends.
