Star Spangz

HDV, Color, Sound (16:9, 04:12 min.), 2013

Star Spangz is an experimental video that involves a translation and deconstruction of the US national anthem, using my own performativity and musicality to think through the diasporic condition, US-Liberia aesthetic and historical connections, and the notion of belonging. This video explores the way identity is constructed, navigated, felt and molded through a poetic approach.
