My first question for you is why in the hell are you making songs about the projects?
I’m sorry pardon me I believe you mean photographs.
You are a rapper, yes?
I’m making photographs of project buildings. My working with geometric square and cube shaped geometry has been consistent. I am entertaining the thought that I am imposing a spot into the structure which may open room for political consideration. What do you think?
What Do You Mean, collaboration?
Yes, I am speaking of something that may be possible for you. If you consider a culture to have a shape you must wonder of your own. Imagine two shapes, where are it’s points.
What happens when a culture imposes a geometry on another?
Yes, that is a good question . One I will consider in the context of public housing in New York City. I suppose the most obvious answer is discomfort . Another person should answer this as well .
Discomfort meaning the opposite of comfort, or lack of?
Both , a am thinking of medical , social , violent situations . Can one attribute those solely to displacement of natural form ?
Ok , so we follow . The question is now how to prove the premise in visual language . I consider my photographs to be documentation .
Of what , exactly ?
Hip hop .
Do you see anything problematic about the way you work ?
It is a risk to transfer something meaningful into another structure , I understand this . I aim for reciprocity , for valuable exchange .
And you profit off this exchange .
The money is existing , it is a matter of who’s hands it is in . I am to support myself ; is there a limit to my need for economic growth ? There are more specific aspects of political inequality to discuss . I may make a place for myself as a translator .
Then can we talk about your use of black.
