Gen-Z Time Capsule:
This is my record player along with my guitar and piano. It also has a record that I believe was very influential to our generation and we all find importance in music.
I think that music has a big role in defining not only pop culture but youth culture. Expression of thoughts, social issues, and pop culture is something really prevalent in music, and I think it’s an important part in defining Gen-Z culture.
Guitar and Inspiration
My go-to guitar and two limited edition records from my favorite musical artist. Music was never a large part of my life until my father introduced me to it at when I was about ten. It has been a massive influence on my life since then.

Taylor Swift was a major country artist until she changed to hip hop as her main genre. Many people don’t agree but she showed Gen-Z that sometimes change is needed.

Mac Miller's Faces Reimagined
This piece is from a project I recently finished in college centered around this exhibition. I chose the album “Faces” by Mac Miller because it is very influential to me.
Mac Miller's Faces Reimagined2
It was released on SoundCloud in 2014 and was recently rereleased in 2021, nearly 3 years after his untimely death. I chose this object because I know many people in the Gen Z generation that consider Mac Miller one of the most influential rappers of our time.

I also thought it was very appropriate because it was released on SoundCloud first, which is also a very popular phenomenon among our generation.
