ANANSI Revolutionary Collective

The ANANSI Revolutionary Collective (ARC000) is a pro-Black, pan-African arts collective that stewards a commons of material resources, infrastructure, people-power, and knowledge. The collective is the steward of the emergent ANANSI philosophy, which is one of Black holistic distribution, seeking to disrupt mass centralization across various disciplines. The collective continually experiments with an emergent collection of collaborative praxis, including collective budgeting, consensus-based decision making, rotational responsibility, reparational funding, and collective mythmaking. We are building a governance model structured around a participatory protocol, which will include guidelines around membership, voting, praxis and project management, and altering the protocol.



Conflux is a social art practice defined by remote creative collaboration. The practice, highly influenced by the fluxus movement, was conceptualized and first executed during the social distancing era of the COVID pandemic. I originally created the format and facilitated Conflux sessions for the Currents.fm community, where we completed Confluxes for:
︎a 16-track mixtape
︎single tracks
︎visuals in Figma

Since then, I’ve continued to experiment with Confluxes in different media. On April 20th, 2023, I helped produce ARC: CONFLUX with the ANANSI Revolutionary Collective. In the event, we taught 3 musical Conflux techniques, and piloted a new format for writing lyrics. In addition, the posters for the event were designed through a Conflux with 3 photographer, remixing each others work. 


Virtual Violence: Vectoralist Class Warfare and Abstract Antagonism

In 2022, my essay Virtual Violence: Vectoralist Class Warfare and Abstract Antagonism was published in Kernel Magazine. In the essay, I put the philosophy of McKenzie Wark, Slavoj Žižek, feminist scholars, Web3 participants, and the techno-skeptical in conversation with one another to define what violence means in this new virtual, vectorlist era. From there, I analyzed the Web3 ecosystem, a battlefield on the frontlines of this disguised evolution, in order to see how “virtual violences” shape our lived reality to ensure that power remains in the hands of a finite elite.

A Moment In Between

24 hour Afrofuturist Juneteenth celebration, featuring an international line up of visionary Black artists, activists, and academics. Held virtually in the COMMON Multiverse, the event featured live performances from the Currents community, five themed planets, four embedded WebXR projects from the Traveling the Interstitium series, an experiment in time traveling through past COMMONs, and the Moment In Between stage hosted by The Guild of Future Architects.

Following the event, Martha Pazienti-Caidan and I produced a retrospective of the festival for Resident Advisor’s The Exchange--the first ever two-part episode for the series. 



Interactive Media Arts Capstone. Mixed reality docu-fiction series investigating the lives of vampires living in Shanghai.
Explored all aspects of production while aiming to learn about humanity through our diverse mythology around vampires.

The final iteration of the project was developed as a part of my capstone course work, but it is the result of merging two seperate inquiries: an exploration of UX design for XR and a docu-fictional approach to film making explored in two previous courses.
