SANKOFA is an Adinkra symbol of the Akan People of Ghana. It literally means “go back and get it”, referring to the proverb of “one can learn from their past”. After researching about the LGBTQ people of Ghana and finding out that Ghana was once tolerant of queer people, Aina's project takes this concept into an instagram campaign. Here, she visually expresses same sex love in a new light, with an Afrofuturistic approach, seeking to ‘Bring Back Love’ into the future. By reclaiming these traditional values, Aina hopes to send a message of tolerance, unity, and love.

Natural forms, I think they are the most accurate because nature has been taking millions of years to evolve and to adapt in the most effective and beautiful way. And that mixed with curiosity is what inspires me. Also people in general, how different cultures can be but at the same time they part from the same human instincts, I find that interesting and admirable.
I usually experiment because I feel like this the only way I can actually truly learn and see what works best.
The earlier you learn how to use the software, the better because you will be able to express your creativity better and improve even faster.
Yes, I'm much more observant.
Because I was curious and I like the idea of creating something. It makes me feel useful.
