Distraction - an experimental poem with animated illustrations
Distraction’s poetic pictoral representation of khoLi’s brain on distraction demonstrates “distraction as an immutable component in our lives that we must learn to make peace with and filter.” KhoLi. continues, “Without focus, I can easily be caught up or completely overwhelmed by content … which … if I’m honest, is what I’m suggesting America wants from its citizens, to be overwhelmed (to the point of paralysis) by the media we willingly follow on a daily basis.”
