Summary
Drawing on the belief system of Vodou, this project is anchored by three theoretical concepts: tidalectics, a term for the repetitive back-and-forth movement of the ocean, symbolizing ritual, balance, and cyclical unity; Marasa, or twinning, a principle of Vodou in which fragmented parts strive for remembrance and holism; and istwa, a Kreyol term whose meaning encompasses history, story, and memory
