Internet

While searching for a map of Brooklyn on the internet I discovered a screen captured Google map with hand drawn marks indicating areas of wealth and poverty. The image was located on a hockey chat room in 2012. The careless mark-making in a primitive Mac Paint-esque style inspired me to create an updated map of Brooklyn in 2015.

There’s a line on the Midnight Marauders album by Q-tip “I’m the black intellect, but unrefined”. Until now I always thought he said “I’m the black internet…” That got me thinking, what does a black internet look like? #blacklivesmatter
