At the beginning of last year, Kanye West – while lying on a matte black ATV among a meandering flock of sheep –Described his nearly 4,000-acre plot, next to Cody, Wyoming, as a “paradigm shift to create platforms for freer thought than the boxes we are in now.” He had plans to transform West Lake Ranch, formerly known as Monster Lake Ranch, into the Yeezy campus: something like a complex of artists suitable for clothing, alternative energy and agriculture, and architectural projects that he had in his work with James Turrell. and Claudio Silvestrin.
