I See No Ships Series – An on going exploration of the theory of perceptual blindness

2014 - present 

I See No Ships is a multimedia series of works that began in 2002. It is my attempt at transcendence as there seems to be a malevolent inclination to maintain an implicit dichotomy or opposition between ideas of white purity and black or brown primitivism. Within this series, I am interested in addressing the cultural imbalance that stems from a denial of self-authored representations and techniques used to form our understanding of what “ethnic” culture is in relation to the norm. Developing my own narratives for what the subjective minds of colonial plunder might have witnessed I attempt to add a counter perspective to the celebrated depictions of a romantic American experience.
