1.   A Grandiose Gesture of Intolerable Rantings




Title: A Grandiose Gesture of Intolerable Rantings | Kanye Quotes
Medium: Engraved Marble Slab
Size: Varying sizes



By etching and engraving Kanye West’s past tweets into marble, this project attempts to give his words a sense of long-lasting grandeur while somewhat ironically eulogizing his pointless ramblings—which he broadcasts to his 29 million followers. At the same time, “A Grandiose Gesture of Intolerable Rantings” makes evident the huge public platform that is given to ‘celebrities’ without having a filtering/fact checking system. “Bill Cosby Innocent”, “Trump All Day”, “Mark Zuckerberg, invest one billion dollars into Kanye West ideas” are just a few of West’s tweets, demonstrating the misuse of social media platforms and the ease at which information can be shared.
