Off Track, Moving Forward, 2013 by Malaika Brooks-Smith-Lowe.

This new media piece was created at a one month residency at Fresh Milk Contemporary Arts Platform in Barbados. Through a collaboration with Barbadian actor and Managing Director of Mustardseed Productions Varia Williams,  this work is concerned with the context of a global culture of ‘progress’. How do we navigate the rushing stream of forward motion? Even our thoughts are going, non-stop in a constant twisted narrative of our past failures and future anxieties. This new media triptych is a meditation of sorts, revealing the frictions between progress and peace in a high demand world.
