Now Pretend

Now Pretend is an experimental investigation into the use of race as an arbitrary signifier. Drawing upon language, personal memories and the 1959 text, "Black Like Me", it deals with Lacan's "mirror state" theories of beauty and the movement from object to subject.

Reviews
"Ethereal … carefully weaves personal essays with text from John Griffin's novel Black Like Me … undermines the inherent dichotomies of black/white, male/female identity."
- Evette Porter, The Village Voice
