All the Good Times is a sound based video installation and performance examining transatlantic aspirations in land lock as a metaphor for generational divides and the fetishization of historiographies.   Archival footage shot by the artists’ respective grandfathers blends with new footage while a soundscape transforms a traditional tune into an aggressively celebratory jazz infused piece littered with repetitive inconclusive processions.  The installation examines the role of nostalgia coupled with the legacies of creole cuisine and the Black Atlantic, questioning the distancing of technology and spirituality.
