I am interested in the patterns of interaction and behaviour that permeate humanity. The last 400 years of recent Southern African history – with European ships first rounding the Cape of Good Hope – initiated a heightened, accelerated time of cross continental reach, colonisation and transformation (much of it profoundly exploitative). The global migration of people in the modern era, often through slavery, irrevocably altered the world and the people inhabiting it. Along with the boons of technology and cross-cultural exchange, powerful systems of hegemonic domination and economic suppression persist today.
