Noir: Queer Diaspora Day-dreaming and World-making

This project began with a persistent daydream about a world called Noir, a city in permanent dawn imbued with nuanced desires for violence and equally with a mood of hope.  And it investigates how certain effects of queer diaspora experiences such as dystopian thoughts, dehumanization, and deviancy could be playfully and powerfully shifted to a mode of orientation and negotiation supporting queer diaspora communities in navigating their struggles and in shaping their collective future, and suggests to activate utopian impulses, confuse the binary, and to rechannel desires, which it refers to as day-dreaming, ghostly-being, and under-covering, as examples of queer diaspora modes of orientation and negotiation.
