Abstract (English)

"The Camo Coat Collection addresses questions of protection in spiritual and logistical realms, inspired by the Yoruba orisa Osanyin, god of healing, plant divination, and forest wisdom and by the writings of Octavia Butler, in particular, Parable of the Sower about which I recently taught the SAIC course “Take Root Among The Stars: The Legacy of Octavia Butler, Surviving the 21st Century & Beyond” with a panel of eco-feminist practitioners (Chelsea Frazier, A. Martine Whitehead, Hương Ngo, and Sami Schalk) and an exhibition of student survival “go” packs based on the book, featured in a Chicago Tribune article “Octavia Butler Exhibit Pushes SAIC Students to Showcase Their “Visionary Muscles” by Darcel Rockett." -- publisher's website.
