Kanye West may be a ‘College Drop Out’ (remember that was his first album), but he sure has a lot to say especially about design, so he stopped by Harvard and talked to the students of the Harvard Graduate School of Design as part of the “DONDA Design Lecture Series.” The program is named after West’s late mother, Donda. “I really do believe that the world can be saved through design, and everything needs to actually be ‘architected.’ And this is the reason why even some of the first DONDA employees were architects that started designing T-shirts instead of buildings. But just to see the work actually be actualized. If I sit down and talk to Oprah for two hours, the conversation is about realization, self realization, and actually seeing your creativity happen in front of you. So the reason why I turn up so much in interviews is because I’ve tasted what it means to create and be able to impact, and affect in a positive way,” Kanye told the students.
Kanye’s lady Kim Kardashian was in the audience listening to her man speak. He later gave the class tickets to his show.
