THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND

A cover of « Don't Touch My Hair » by Solange. Through this song, which is considered to be a kind of hymn to African cultural heritage thanks to its focus, among other things, on the protection of kinky hair from the toxic micro-aggressions that it receives in Occidental societies, I explore a kind of imagery where the hair joins this heritage, as well as my deafness - where the subtitles follow color codes that correspond in different ways to codes that help me apprehend an aural and/or visual form - and glitches that demonstrate an esthetic that relates to the machine, etc... But, in the end, can they understand?
