About this submission

Present stage of this work: Nearly final version

Fueled by her interest in history, technology, perception, movement, and our relationship with one another and with nature, Bruklyn aims to bring life to essential aspects of the African American experience — an experience that transcends the trials and tribulations Black people face. In her eyes, the elements listed above hold the wisdom that we need to imagine new worlds that not only transitions ideologies and norms, but creates possibilities and potential. Through mingling the voices of men, women and even ghosts, Bruklyn’s work is a place where myth, magic and superstition are inextricably intertwined with everyday verities.
