Vinyl tidal wave at NY Museum of Arts and Design

So we haven’t reported on any kind of hip hop art in a little while, and I’m beginning to feel like we’re a little overdue.

The project, on display now at New York’s The Museum of Arts and Design, is titled Sound Wave and is by Jean Shin.

Artsy Magazine has a pretty good (and brief) biography on her.  Shin was born in South Korea and has spent most of the last 20 years studying and working in Brooklyn.  Her focus is on collecting a lot of old objects and repurposing them in a way that’s unexpected.   I do have to say that I quite like her piece below.  As long as she used bad records.
