Hotten(thot) features a collection of collages that reference the objectification of Black women in the history of scientific illustration. Eighteenth and nineteenth century medical Records show that Black bodies had been heavily exploited for medical research. Bodies were dissected, hyper-sexualized, misdiagnosed and mistreated to further medical studies that are still significant today. I autonomously use this exploitation to present a new history. By addressing the horrific historical truths behind this scientific degradation, I claim ownership over my own exposure. What was once demeaned and shamed is now celebrated and exalted. Through the ownership of sexuality and beauty, I evolve the scientific framework that has oppressed Black females throughout history.
