Destini T. Riley is an interdisciplinary artist, who primarily works in the mediums of video, animation, and moving images. Within every project, she is intrigued by the power of expression and voice. As a Black woman raised in Durham, North Carolina, she often is in search of the means to bridge and comprehend her experiences with race, class, community, and culture through her creative practice. Her short film, “I, Destini” has facilitated a window into reality for millions of people and has been archived in the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. More recently, in the midst of the 2020 George Floyd protests, Destini was inspired by the space she and other community members occupied. She transformed the plywood of her family’s boarded-up restaurant with a mural that demanded justice and healing. Her most recent work, “Welcome to the Bull” (a three dimensional, multimedia monument) is a continuation of the community-wide sense of connectedness. This multimedia structure includes recorded statements that further establish an opportunity for nationwide community advocacy, self-expression, and reflection while eliminating the restrictions of gathering with the use of augmented reality.
