Rocheteau often works with primary documentation and collage in what they call a haintological practice. This fixation upon specters of the past haunting the present//living impact upon the future informs their work across genres. Their writing has appeared in Apogee, The American Academy of Poets, Day One, The Offing, LitHub, Barnes and Noble Review among others.
