Middle Mother: Bodies of Water

The final show work is in two parts, a narrative titled, Middle Mother, and an installation, or set, that depicts an important scene from the narrative titled, Bodies of Water. 

The fiction presents a semi-afro-futuristic narrative that looks at our relationship with technology over time, more specifically how this affects a very specific group – mulatto women. It depicts a possible future that centres on the chance colonisation of digital space.

This speaks of the fluidity of information without a body, at race-language, and at uncomfortable binaries encoded into this language. The installation, Bodies of Water, takes reference from the slave song ‘Wade in the Water’, where means of escape from capture were coded into song. The song speaks to this fictional narrative.

The work emphasises that technological advances don’t happen in a vacuum, both their creation and delivery affects us all differently and unequally.
