AYZACO



Ayana Zaire Cotton is a transdisciplinary artist, designer, technologist, and educator, visioning and collectively crafting a post-work future. Her practice is rooted in black feminist, street pedagogy, mutual aid, open source philosophy, black labor, and black aesthetics research. This research has manifested in her work via independent publishing, virtually teaching software engineering to students worldwide, and an experimental clothing line as a platform for researching labor studies and aesthetics. As an artist, designer, and software engineer Ayana feels education as a discipline is the vessel that most resonates with the full possibilities of her mediums, goals, and practice. Currently, she is exploring “curriculum” as a world building device to organize our black radical imagination; “curriculum” as the only landscape expansive, abundant and generative enough to hold all the truths we find ourselves contending with in the year 2020.
