Archipelagic Environments


In this micro-essay on the artists James Cooper (of Bermuda) and Jamilah Sabur (Miami-based, born in St. Andrew Parish, Jamaica), I explore both artists’ portrayals of the subaqueous landscapes of the Caribbean.

In these landscape ecologies, residues provide tactile pathways back to the island past.
