Temporal Bubble presents a seated figure with a large, cage-like protective helmet. The pattern of the helmet is made up of a repeating Sankofa Adinkra Symbol. This symbol roughly translates to "go back and get it," representing how we learn from the past. The exaggerated size and circular form of the helmet is intended to evoke the campy aesthetic of early Science-Fiction films and pulp comics, conjuring notions of space and time travel.
"These new works are a further exploration and incorporation of a set of signs and symbols into my practice. Overlapping notions of royalty, religiosity, Artificial Intelligences and spiritual transcendence are still present, while adding new notions of popular culture, ideas of the id/ego dynamic and a revisiting of African traditional cultures and signs. Using this library of symbols and references, these works are an attempt, through portraiture, to frame and define an internal sense of racial culture and mythology."
