Justin is an interdisciplinary designer working at the intersections of apparel design, ecology, and scholarship. Inspired by non-human ecologies and social formations of ungovernability, his practice explores avenues for forging more-than-human relations for mutual flourishing. Drawing from theories of race, animality, and political ecology, his research interrogates mechanisms that uphold White humanism and seeks to decolonize the racialized conception of the “human.” He is currently interested in tracing the spectral potentials of non-human actors, particularly at molecular and microbial scales.
