Visual artist Jeremy Kamal engages storytelling and worldbuilding as a way of exploring relationships between blackness, culture, and ecology.

In 2017 he received a Masters in Landscape Architecture from the Harvard GSD and a Master of Arts in SCI-Arc’s postgraduate Fiction and Entertainment program in 2019. His work continues to use themes of landscape and fiction as a way of envisioning speculative ecologies. Through fiction, Kamal is interested in expanding our understanding of how abstractions such as myths, values, rituals, addictions, and emotions are part of a continuum with the material landscapes around us.

His focus on blackness and its intersection with ecology is the driving force behind the worlds he brings to life through animation, game engine technology, music, and storytelling. Kamal's work offers another perspective on the way we think about space and the cultural behaviors that shape it.
