Working with Tina Campt and Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa, Gnomic developed a flexible audiovisual identity for an inter-institutional collaboration between Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design. The Black Visualities Initiative is a provocation to engage in the creation of new forms of visibility, awareness and encounter. Bringing together artists, theorists, critics, writers and poets, BVI seeks to create a generative critical space for realizing the radical possibilities of black visuality as a political praxis of living otherwise.

The identity centres around The Window, a flexible symbol representing an aperture through which light and visualities can pass. The Window frames BVI’s role as both curator and advocate.
