Rap Mapping and the Everyday

BY LIZ TESTON
@ VOL 12 ON AUG 19, 2014

This conceptual project is steeped in both community engagement and storytelling as an investigative tool. As studio critic Jennifer Bonner outlined in ATL: A Guide to the Dirty South, there is a rivalry in east coast and west coast design, like the rivalry between east coast and west coast rap. The importance of cultural identity and community through narrative are essential in the South - so much that legends are accepted simply because they they convey moral lessons. There is a paradox in storytelling and fact, but not in legitimacy. Liz Teston explores the role of placemaking within the cultural context of Atlanta and it's rap history. 

"Presentation of the Day" on November 24, 2014.
