I began using weed baggies back in 2018 as a way of displaying and performing my work. Mostly used within Batons, 2018, the exploration started as a direct response to my experience of racialised stereotype threat, particularly the assumption of my engagement in criminal activity (drug dealing). 

As a child being asked the “do you sell weed” question, I learned that a feeling of unanswerable frustration would run through me for many years; and that seeing through my double-conscious perspective would highlight both my visibility and invisibility within white spaces. 

I hope to exercise this frustration out of my system one day.
