The Global South influences a.field projects on both the African continent and North America.
The projects take various forms: buildings, speculative projects, consultations and applications such as critical service design, installations, and academic publications. I have worked with numerous agents, governmental and non-profit agencies, university research groups, and Indigenous groups between Canada and South Africa. The solo, collaborative, and co-creative projects received funding from SSHRC, the Connaught Fund, the Graham Foundation, and the Ford Foundation, among other public and private granting agencies.
