Inspired by 15th-century tarot, divination, and playing cards, the series “Organic Tarot” explores the process of reshaping archived documentary style representations of Black sharecroppers and ex-slaves reimagined as divine inspirational bodies in space. Intended to create a broader complexity of Black identity stripped of tragic transatlantic histories, “Organic Tarot”, investigates archived material as a method of decolonization of the marginalized mind.
