Drawing on a rich tradition of cultural critics, jazz musicians, philosophers and critical theorists, the project is a response to Deleuze’s idea of the Image of Thought as “the image thought gives itself of what it means to think.” Fusing my love for jazz music and practice as a jazz musician with my philosophical interests in deconstruction and Fred Moten’s synthesis of Blackness as an aesthetic of immanence, the project will aim to explore the implications of this radical aesthetic as providing a different image of thought that offers us both a critique and alternative to normative thought-systems.
