PROJECT

MANIA is a collection of digital poetry, music, and collages reflecting psychosis as a reaction to oppressive environments. Yatta Zoker uses abrupt tonal shifts and sonic/visual patchwork to express the schisms of thought and time that can arise within marginalized people, namely black people, who have no choice but to hold societies discrepancies within their bodies.
