Mourning/Warning: An Abecedarian artists' book

  • Stripping the maritime alphabet of its primary colors and replacing them with muted browns and blacks, Mourning/Warning highlights the relationship of Americans of African diaspora to water, maritime travel and the need for an alternate means of communication in times of emergency and duress. How do you send a warning call that hatred comes constantly in waves?

    M/W serves as a method of honoring, mourning, and remembering the slain and wronged as well as teaching our children and ourselves to be vigilant and wary in  hostile terrain, where your skin color makes you an easy target. 
  • Mourning/Warning is in the following collections: Bennington College, Bibliotheca Librorum apud Artificem, Cornell University, Florida State University, Lafayette College, Library of Congress, Rhode Island School of Design, University of California at Irvine, University of Delaware, University of Virginia, University of Washington, Wesleyan University, Yale University, and private collections.
