a flashback from March 6, 2020
Maybe I am a thought that never occurred. ⁣
Barbers said they'd never ⁣
seen someone like me before⁣
When I walked in a barbershop ⁣
for the first time in five years⁣
Looking like this.⁣
I asked what they think ⁣
Black folks look like in the Afrofuture?⁣
They said they had never thought of it.⁣

a Black clockwork: afrofunctional ornaments of chronoliberation
I want to make my work move, mechanically, in Black ways; I want to exhibit an Afro-functionality of time. I plan to create facial ornaments that incorporate movement in order to illustrate Black chronoliberation.
