no beginning and no end
This journal documents an ongoing personal journey of acknowledging, making space for and deepening into right relationship with the land I live on, the various communities I am part of and myself. I find everyday ceremony in daily practices including, but not limited to; weaving, sewing, parenting, writing, being outdoors, walking, divining with my ancestors and dreaming awake.
I am currently a PhD research candidate at Sydney College of the Arts, The University of Sydney. The working title and topic of my research is "Reclaiming my indigenous roots on unceded land: transcribing and integrating counter archives". I consider myself an artist-researcher whereby my art practice is indivisible from my spiritual practice, my ancestral connections and my navigating this world as a woman of colour with African, Iberian and Indigenous South American heritage. As part of my PhD research, I am guided by three ancestral tree relatives: Ombú/Bella Sombra (Phytolocca dioica), Jacaranda (Jacaranda mimosifolia) and Silk Floss/Kapok (Ceiba speciosa) who have varying histories, migratory paths and lengths of habitation in Australia far from their native South American origin.
