Hip-Hop Tourette’s is a learned neuropsychiatric disorder with onset in adulthood, characterized by multiple physical and vocal tics. After significant years spent listening to Rap music these tics often times include coprolalia involving rap lyric references in response to conversation and changes in environment. Hip-Hop Tourette’s re-contexualizes New York City with Rap lyrics.
Conflux is the annual New York festival for contemporary psychogeography, the investigation of everyday urban life through emerging artistic, technological and social practice.
