Kanye talks about the power of design at Harvard
When he's not on stage for his Yeezus Tour, Kanye West is dedicating time to his new art collective DONDA. This all began in January of 2012, when he tweeted about his goal of creating a company that would produce products that matched "emotional want and utilitarian need." Now, he's speaking out about the progress DONDA is making. Most recently, the rapper visited Harvard University's Graduate School of Design to get budding architects excited about his venture. This was just the first in the DONDA Design Lecture Series.
"I really do believe that the world can be saved through design," Yeezy said, as quoted by XXL magazine. "I believe that utopia is actually possible - but we're led by the least noble, the least dignified, the least tasteful, the dumbest, and the most political."
Over the past two years, DONDA has tackled magazine covers, stage design and album art for 'Ye's G.O.O.D. Music label. What do you expect from the group next?
