I have to be honest with you that I don’t remember exactly what this is called. All I know is that when I went to visit the Anthropology Department last week, outside of my advisor’s door is this multi-layered collage of Africa/n Culture.
I remember the professor said something about seeing Africa and African people for who they are and what it is, and not simply the exoticized place that is often in many of our imaginations. It also has something to do with working with HIV/AIDS.
But among this insanely awesome and extremely educational and representational creation, with three or four layers of imagery
It never fails, that my eyes seem to somehow zero in on some area of my work, regardless of what else happens to be around.
And I just had to share that. I really am drawn to this work. Literally.
