This project responded to a brief of approaching a culture I felt is under or misrepresented in Sydney. I tentatively and sensitively approached ‘Afrofuturism’. Through research and many conversations I made a logotype which I felt represented the smudging and obscuring of black representation as well as the fluidity of the black identity in science fiction. The name comes from culture critic Mark Dery’s 1996 essay on Afrofuturism. I created the costume with salvaged objects making the imagery both conceptually strong and environmentally friendly. The inclusion of a silver foil elevates the design by playing between old and new as well as adding another dimension.
