Romanization—Test 1 (2017-2018 QAM Annual), 2018

For the 2017-2018 Queer|Art Mentorship exhibition, I translated the wall labels into Hatnahans, a conlang from an online comic series popular among Black citizens living a Post-Reparations US. The comic is set on an island nation called Hatnaha located 600 miles south of Africa's southern tip, and operates as a story within a larger story about life and racial identity after Reparations. In this future US, fans of the comic learn and speak the language, similar to Trekkies and Klingon. Learn a little about Hatnahans here.
