Wo'se Kofi was fortunate to be given the opportunity to have his music featured in a USC Project working with the community. His conscious lyrics were what inspired the group to use his music.
Using design research, we are investigating a new role for the local phone booth in preserving culture and building sustainable business. Our project is a collaboration between USC media technologists, local artists, and the cultural businesses of Leimert Park/ Kaos Network.
