$250 on soundcloud (2015) audio recordings, digital images, various sizes and lengths

Having attended Yoko Ono's 5am sunrise ritual at the Moma, some days later Shirt announced $250 On Soundcloud (2015) taking visual references for the project's imagery from Ono's body of work. Here Shirt continues a newly formed practice of modifying his own photography slightly, here carefully splicing words in Ono's work to make new text. A rap project at its core, $250 On Soundcloud saw Shirt over 7 days write and record to a beat of anyone's choosing for a one time fee of $250. Six records over the week were produced with those participating mostly consisting of up and coming hip-hop producers. Selected tracks are still streaming on Shirt's Soundcloud here.
