The embodied ‘raced’ self, transposed into online space as avatar carries with it interminable questions related to the nuances of identity, representation and Blackness. So much so, that the weight of questions burdens both the inner critical reasoning inherent in the process of making work and the outer facade of the creation itself. Any notion of lightness, joy of creativity in the process of making can be crushed or lost, by the over positionality which takes place in order to create.
