This blog will be dedicated to looking at Hip Hop culture and its various elements as a rhetorical construct, image making methodology, and epistemology.

Futhamo is one of my newest identity. Futhamo (or "futhermore") has a habit of seeing images past the picture plane..and as a result..feels compelled to draw what he sees. He can't help it. He knows that there's something else beyond the mediated edges of the screen. Just beneath the surface, there's a new kind of truth; something we ignore on a daily basis.

The idea of the SEE-JAY, of course, comes from the aural remixer of sound and texture called a Disc Jockey. The seejay collects images and visual texts. Then the seejay composes new images with new meanings through juxtaposition, repetition, bricolage, and other methods of visual culture production.

Every one is a seejay. They just don't know it yet.
