PRECIOUS MEMORIES
Art by Mansa K. Mussa
Curated by Micha Hamilton

Mansa K. Mussa documents and explores the trove of human and cultural treasures he encounters through the medium of photography, using his images to illustrate his collage and shadow box work. Early black and white dance imagery captures and suspends moments of performance in dramatic and rapturous displays of composition, depth, form and texture, while his collages and iPadology photos are kaleidoscopic explosions of color, layer and texture designed to appeal to and stimulate all five human senses.  These creative impulses are translated into a series of tableaus with the power to alter time, release light and energy, suspend motion and redefine space.
