Psykhe, 2016

During a two-month residency at Jardín Etnobotánico de Oaxaca, I made a series of ink drawings on cochineal presses to practice corresponding with the more-than-human psykhe, experimenting with a decolonial methodology for psychology. Premised on ritual, hesitation, and mystery, each drawing attended to specific native plants, opening a space for me to be guided by their stories, and shaping the spirit-cum-politics of my analyses. They will be printed in the cracks of my forthcoming book with Routledge, Psycurity: Colonialism, Paranoia, and the War on Imagination, which is planned for publication in 2018.
