Lenina in the 4est
"Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished." -Lao Tzu
As told by
I am firstly an Artkivist: a journalist, filmmaker and photographer documenting artists and their creative processes for archival purposes. I seek to preserve how Spirit is ever-present within art. I focus on two specific ways Spirit is evoked in art: first, how Spirit and Ritual are a part of the creation process; and second, how colonization continues to oppress the Black artist experience throughout the African diaspora.
I am here to document Indigenous art forms before they are erased; and to illustrate how new art forms are inspired by the struggles of oppression. I am here to help elevate our community of oppressed artists around the African diaspora whose art creates literal healing and deserves to be documented properly from a Black healer's perspective. As forms of therapy and public art I perform meditational movement; I am also a collage street artist and I am passionate about music. All of these interests mix together in order to reveal my path to Ascension.

a theme that the Black Girl Magik collective explored and invited the community to investigate with us through a practice of communal healing and coalition building.
