Shikeith, visual artist art work

There are both structural and cultural inequalities that have formulated barriers that dictate our psychological perception of the world, each other, and ourselves. My work examines the societal, cultural, and political misconceptions involved in being viewed as a black male in America. Somewhere Over the __ is a body of work created in residence with Bunker Projects including photography, video, sculpture and installation. The works explore the emotional experience related to being perceived, and classified as an African-American male. I am reacting to what causes an individual to walk faster when I am walking behind them—or in turn, what causes me to cross the street when a group of African American males are coming towards me.
