Aljumaine Gayle is a queer interdisciplinary creative technologist working at the intersections of technology, art, design, and data justice. Currently enrolled in OCADU’s Digital Futures program and actively co-organizes/ co-designs programming on behalf of IntersectTO. Aljumaine is a researcher with the University of Toronto’s Technoscience Research Unit.
Aljumaine’s art and research practice explores othering of blackness in contemporary life and aims to subvert this othering through Afrofuturism and artistic use of technology. Their practice challenges tokenism and trauma narratives that characterize the majority of mainstream black art, film and music.
