The previous (inexhaustible and growing) list of the identifiers to which I subscribe or within which I exist paves a complicated, contradictory, yet ever-reaching wholeful entry point into my life. Thereby, the intricacies of an idiosyncratic artist’s life are the content which I will inscribe on these following posts to come.
Since I have earned a U.S Fulbright Student Award to conduct research in Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa, I am currently writing this post during my grant period. Moreover, many of the upcoming posts will specifically reflect on my time here. I hope both you and I may arrive in unknown, but possible territories of our livelihoods.
