AFS educates the public, practitioners and government policy makers about the specific problems as well as the positive contributions these disadvantaged communities have made to their built environments.
AFS will publish articles, research papers, books as well as organize seminars, conventions and exhibitions to showcase its projects and research to the public. Additionally AFS will reach out to others working with disadvantaged communities and invite them to showcase their work in our publications and exhibitions. A key component of our education programs will be to promote the interests of these communities in a positive light and stimulate the public to support development efforts.
My work treats the phenomenon of landscape as temporal—that which is being constantly produced by environmental and social forces, which themselves are in constant flux.
My paintings represent geological processes—that occur over a large time span—such as sedimentation, erosion, decay, and ruination using techniques that emulate those processes. Using techniques of layering and obliteration, I create visual narratives to represent landscape production that negotiates politics of erasures, appropriation, and displacements of and by people through history.
