MOJO: DA FRINGES
Mojo: Da Fringes is an animated Afrofuturist Geomyth. Exhibited as a four-channel film, the installation recasts gangs as environmental caretakers, conjurors, and folk healers. The story revolves around a defiant tea maker named Demetrius and set in a speculative ecosystem in which gangs use colored flora to claim territory and cultivate medicinal plants. A member of the “Crimson Needles”, Demetrius’ decision to harvest a blue plant triggers a ripple effect that unravels the red landscape he calls home.
