Sights & Sounds: Cynthia Igbokwe
Common Discourse is a project designed to help others (and ourselves) think through creativity, focus, and intentional work—from Alex Tan & Alice Otieno.
Every Tuesday we share words from a few ideas, a quote from somebody else, and links worth sharing. On Fridays we invite a guest to share images from their camera roll and a sound that resonates with them. Words from the journal will come at least twice a month.
Cynthia Igbokwe is a London-based researcher with multi-disciplinary practices in strategy, creative direction and curation. She recently graduated from Central Saint Martins with a MA in Innovation Management and currently works as a creative strategist at Consul.Studio.
Her curatorial work explores diverse themes in cultural theory and technology, alongside sonic and visual art. You can view her on-going visual research on Locally Grown TV, which is a project that holds a collection of films, lectures and interviews exploring the aesthetics, philosophy and politics of Black sound and visual art.
I’m always intrigued by the way she connects rich historical and present ideas throughout her work, and how such a practice goes on to contribute towards future explorations within the Black Diaspora and beyond.
Here’s what she sent us this week!
