Ntoki ya Mayele Visual Poem

Videography is something I enjoy whenever I have time to do so especially given life, work, adulting, and my other creative projects I’m currently working on. This one uses alternating images and is an abstract video involving imagery associated with the Congo (in this case, both countries as seen with the flags). It was a little project referencing part of my heritage that I’ve only known about for a couple of years now. Interestingly enough, the wooden animal napkin holders I use are based on animals native to that part of Africa and were originally from Kinshasa, DRC. What makes it awesome is that they’re handmade AND fairly traded, so the artists got payed what they were owed making these things. I got them as a present last Christmas and I thought it was very cool. Now, I got to use them as part of the visuals. Feel free to check out this video.

Natondo mingi nayo!

    • Thanks, Khaya! I thought it was an amazing surprise with these animal napkin holders made and fairly traded from the DRC. Apparently, they were part of a fair trade craft event and were purchased there. Thanks! I do my best to be imaginative and creative with my different modes of art. That means a lot. I want to make more videos of different subjects this year.
