Ivy’s current works celebrate Black Womxn and explore themes of self-identity and liberation. Using augmented and virtual reality, animation, and mining archival footage from Black media, she is creating an Afrofuturistic world that centers on an immersive, documentary experience that celebrates Black Womxn by bridging archival footage, animation, and documentary.
Ivy Nicole-Jonét was born and raised in Southeast Washington, DC. Experiencing the gentrification that invaded the city, Ivy has first-hand experience in the ways gentrification profoundly disrupts, disregards, and dishevels Black communities. This experience inspired her to delve into documentary filming and animation as a medium for expression, preservation, and documentation.
