Hyperion Çaca Yvaire

Research Associate
Social Practice + Posthuman Design

Hyperion Çaca Yvaire is an Atakapa Ishak and Sea Kréyòl territorial practice artist-researcher, a sovereign poet, and kinmaker. His sculptural and sonic work explores the afterlives and aftershocks of collision through investigating administrative, legislative, and wave phenomena. As a territorial researcher, he is interested in the matter resulting from the collision of materials, practices, and claims. When this matter is spatial and tangible, he refers to it as a ruin, when it is spatial and intangible, he refers to it as an afterlife. As a {forensic performance} artist, he is interested in what material effect is possible when a collective practice of alternative claim making is brought to a planetary scale.
