The wall text (Transcription) and digital drawings in light boxes and the large scroll (Migrant Technology) are a decolonised language I developed to describe my father’s contributions to technology which remain in secret due to corporate/colonial/copyright law.

This work is a critique on how institutions in structurally, financially and socially reproduce the slave economy.
