“Emergence Disturbs The Concept Of Linearity."

After a spiritual upbringing in Nigeria's capital city of Lagos, Bayo Akomolafe founded a network of artists, activists and academics dedicated to using art and ritual to reframe the world's interlocking social and environmental crises.

When Bayo Akomolafe was a child he prayed to God for a “faith-o-meter” – some kind of tool that would measure his worthiness and assure him of his place in heaven. “Of course I didn’t get my prayer answered,” he says. “But I got something better than an answer, I got bewildered, and I am in a state of bewilderment now.”
