I am an artist, arts educator and writer working across the fields of contemporary art, cultural history and critical art theory. My work explores the legacies of colonialism, psychoanalysis and surrealism in art, cinema and popular culture from ethnographic, science fictional and social psychology perspectives. I have a multi-disciplinary arts practice, often working collaboratively on projects inspired by the shared interests of an affinity group. My book Undead Uprising: Haiti, Horror and the Zombie Complex (MIT/Strange Attractor 2017) explores the uses of Haiti as a locus for Euro-American fears about African culture, spirituality and revolutionary excess in the Americas, and their sublimation into popular horror tropes. I am currently working on a long-term artistic research project called The Skullcracker Suite, investigating cultural decolonization in British Columbia, Canada.
