Devin N. Morris is a mixed media artist and writer whose practice includes photography, collage assemblage and video marionette performance. His work is rooted in memory and mental dialogue, interrogating how distractions drive behaviors when communicating, as well as how memory subconsciously roots itself in the the contemporary proliferation of black identity. In studying fashion-based imagery, he became increasingly aware of the lack of black representation within commercial environments. Placing the photograph at the center of his practice, he looks to rebuke that occurrence by representing black queer men and women within his imagery and arrangements.
Devin is also the editor of the great collaborative effort 3 Dot Zine, which is an annual publication that serves as a forum for invited artists to center and elaborate on marginalized concerns and celebrates the futurity of minorities. He has exhibited in America and Brazil, with short stories and visual works also appearing in NYU’s ISO Magazine, Nii Journal (London), Picture Newspaper and Packet Bi-Weekly Zine amongst others. He will release the third issue of 3 Dot Zine in the fall.
