Ransom Notes

Ransom Notes consists of a series of subversive counter-narratives crafted out of selectively redacted, edited and remixed official texts produced by people and institutions of racial power, inspired by Christina Sharpe’s work on Black annotation and redaction. Through¬†mimicry, fictionalization, and truncation, ransom notes neutralize the threat produced by dominant texts and deconstruct the ideologies and archives that establish and reproduce dominant narratives about black death.
