Li Harris and Alisha B. Wormsley: A Way to AFRAM Opening Reception

D.R.E.A.M. = A Way to AFRAM

(Diffraction + Restoration + Electromagnetic Analogue of Mass = A Way to AFRAM)

A collaboration of Li Harris and Alisha B Wormsley, A Way to AFRAM is about imagineering various technologies and applied sciences to continue the ancestral practice of creating safe places for Black people to exist abundantly on this planet and beyond.

It is through the work and research that Harris and Wormsley will try to ascend to AFRAM, an inner space reality for Black exponential potential of Being. To do this Harris and Wormsley establish a series of portals through site-specific field work in international and national topographical locations. Together they document their ethereal excavations and travels to South America, East Africa, and various sites within the US. They learn via experimentations with sound, frequency and choreographic performance how to activate AFRAM and share its access. Data such as environmental sounds, historical narratives, and visual media is collected for further study and processing in the performance research lab and recording studio.
