VIDEO ART—THE UNBLINDING—SINGLE CHANNEL VIDEO INSTALLATIONS

THE UNBLINDING is a series of self portraits depicting an ogbanje's progression from unawareness to clarity around its nature as an embodied spirit. Initial self-portraits include paintings created by the ogbanje in its initial state of 'blindness' and an autobiographical novel, FRESHWATER, in which the ogbanje articulates details of embodiment and ascribes legibility to its self. The final set of self-portraits is an ongoing collection of video art, using ritual and performance to render multiple self-aware iterations of the embodied spirit.
