Transmission/Transition explores the feeling of displacement in the diaspora through a ‘Gen Z’ lens. This collaborative visual series uses an Afro-Portraitism approach of self representation and the
appropriation of western portraiture.
The series imagines the arrival of the diaspora in the same light Christopher Columbus was portrayed in his arrival to the Americas. The visual direction takes form in a stylised and hyper opulent manner. Inspired by Isaac Julien’s Western Union series, this project focuses on ‘self’ and explores the internal dialogues of feeling displaced and how to reconcile this feeling.
