This project by Katya Deve situates the history of hip hop in particular times and places, starting in the South Bronx in 1973. Deve’s use of a map in representing and analyzing the history of this art form is highly appropriate, as hip hop is a highly geographically influenced musical genre. The time slider allows the viewer to navigate fluidly between the years of 1973 and 2016. The view transforms into a cluster map as yellow circles appear and expand across a map of the continental United States, representing over a thousand different notable hip hop artists and their hometowns. The user is able to click on individual artists and listen to a clip of one of their songs.
