Afro Hair Futurity is a project by Alix Bizet that was presented in the Self Design Academy of Eindhoven, Holland. It includes a series of podcasts comprising interviews of an artist, designer, filmmaker, anthropologists and trichologist reflecting on their knowledge, personal and professional experiences of Afro Hair. More generally this work aims to be a starting point to rethink Afro hair in a post-colonial context and as a performance of black futurity.

"This project is a reflexive waltz about our shadow, that puts in a mirror the theme of plastic and our own darkness. This parallel suggests rethinking the question of how to integrate rather than reject, both at the macro and micro scale : plastic being the shadow of current society reflects our individual and subjective shadows and our way of dealing with them. Recycling, instead of expelling, could be a healthier alternative, both for the planet and for us. Dancing with the waste, dancing with our darkness, dancing with death - hence the nod to the Catrina and musically to the Llorona - this is what we try to capture in Plastic Waltz" Visuales Nidra
