Good morning, Marcello,

I am a professor at Baruch working on an oral history research project about undocumented digital artists and activists.

I've followed some of your work with Undocupoets and I would be honored to interview you. This project is funded, and in exchange for your time, I can offer you a $60 Amazon gift card. The interview would take place in my office at Baruch and would be quite informal. I would ask questions like, “Can you tell me about some of your recent creative work?” And, “What do you wish U.S.-born citizens knew about undocumented immigrants?”

The interview would take about an hour during a time that is convenient for you. If you think you might like to participate, or if you have any questions about this project before you make your decision about whether to participate, just let me know and I'll do my best to answer them.

Thanks for considering,

such a moving story that kept me aware of my experience of dislocation within my form in whiteness. I have always been documented, reaping the comfort of a story that tells the system of authority that I belong or am not to be questioned. I don't have to exist invisible, it's my very visibility that gives me what I take for granted, and washes away stories of the undocumented, the people of color, the stolen, the exiled. This follows me in the story in a profound way: I am going to see and question the land more deeply, for my healing is embedded in the roots that feed off of the decay of bodies, "nourishing the branches". A call to re-grow.

thank you Marcello!
