Beats, Rhymes, Tech:

The Intersection of Art, Technology, and Hip Hop

Eunice’s project consists of four public art installations that use the elements of hip hop culture: Turntablism/DJing, Graffiti Art, Breaking, and Rapping. She used these installations to gain perspective in interactive multimedia production expressed through performances and installation.

In Eunice’s words:

I want to be able to convey the connection between hip-hop culture and technology through these four installations and to emphasize the complex relationship that hip-hop has with technology through my work. By exploring hip-hop’s technological and innovative roots, my intention is to use technology to explore the cultural analysis of art, design, and media that visualizes Hip-Hop as a cultural indicator.
