Roopa Vasudevan is a multidisciplinary NYC-based artist whose latest series uses rap lyrics to determine the shape of 3D-printed gold ‘grillz’. Vasudevan used algorithmic analysis to score the polarity between the mentions of extreme poverty and excessive wealth.
In Vasudevan’s description of her project, she noted that lyrical “mentions in each category are scored according to relative distance from words of the opposite polarity, and the resulting landscape formed is extruded into a 3D shape and printed as wearable grills.”
