The Mist in Mystic (2012)
The Mist in Mystic is a series of photographs made using a process I call "water collage", during which I submerged cutouts of found imagery under water, letting the water's fluid movements determine their placements. The final image is then embedded within a white silhouette of curly hairstyles sourced online.
This work illustrates a short story I wrote of the same name. A personal account on the "unruly" nature of black hair, the story tells of the public humiliation experienced from a failed attempt to blend in. The photographs in this series are intended to be exhibited along with the text of this short story.
