From Olivier:

With the assistance of a Creative Capital Foundation grant I converted 13 billboard advertisements on Houston’s freeways to photographic representations of the landscape that exists directly behind the billboard structures. In addition, I collaborated with two composers who created a musical score to accompany the billboards—this soundtrack was available on Houston’s NPR station. I premiered two videos, which I made to accompany a live performance of these compositions on November 17, 2009 at Moores Opera House at the University of Houston.

"I’m dealing with what goes into making an African-American myth, but slavery still exists. The jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk calls it volunteer slavery. We elect to become servants to a certain system or company or product. We don’t open ourselves to the total choices of freedom. We look at a limited palette and choose from that."
