I make fans because I think this form is associated with African spirituality and a way to keep cool while "praising the lord" I have taken this form to create a spirit of memory, they are amulets of protection and offer me the opportunity to work outside of traditional canvas squares and golden rectangle. I have used the fan as a medium or shape to record family memories, speak against Jim crow, and call for mercy and justice.
