NOCT-

I have recently been working on “NOCT-” from Hoax, an evolving collection/performance of poetry across media.

“NOCT-” is a series of erasures predicated on how the demonization of brown and black bodies, the anxiety of erasure, and internalized inferiority manifests into identity crisis and alienation. The piece is twofold: the isolated text arranged as 17 pages of poetry and the “erased” original, which consists of 200+ pages of encoded imagery–imagery that draws from sigil-making, astrolabes, magic circles etc… It is a chronicle of identity crisis. the source text is a how-to book on conducting dark magic. “dark” as in “black”
