Owed to Bussa (2016) is the first in Hannah Catherine Jones’ Diasporic Oweds series of investigations into her own embodied Afrofuturism. Newly reconfigured as an installation, Jones infuses the historical figure of Bussa with her sense of ever-expanding research practice. A digital scrapbook of her internet browsing history– simultaneously experienced and shared with her audience as a form of collective and actionable history.
Hannah Catherine Jones aka Foxy Moron is a London based artist, researcher, radio presenter (NTS Radio; BBC Radio), composer and conductor, and founder of Peckham Chamber Orchestra. Jones often performs under the pseudonym Foxy Moron– creating works that juxtapose ancient musical modalities (Mixolydian, Phrygian) with sci-fi timbres to produce what she calls ‘sonic antagonisms’– a vehicle for the artist to explore the conceptual possibilities of Afrofuturism.
