Neeyah Muhammad

I am born and raised in Chicago. From a young age I've been heavily interested in the arts and making commentary on my surroundings. As an interdisciplinary artist, my work comes in a variety of media that helps me conceptually solve visual and philosophical problems surrounding the Divine Paradox. I am someone that values experience and truth. As a person who has been through many difficult times, using experiences as a catalyst for social change is something that I admire and try to strive for. I am interested in the intersection between art and science and how defining reality ( or not) comes into the play of it all. A lot of my work deals with quantum physics in that aspect, as well as afro-pessimism in hopes to combine my research into one book or paper that acts as a philosophical meditation on the latter. In this process, my practice produces epistemological artifacts documenting this journey.
