Until tomorrow, you can catch Kanye West and 12 Years A Slave director Steve McQueen's collaborative video All Day/I Feel Like That at LACMA Broad Contemporary Space in Los Angeles (a video has also leaked online, albeit incomplete).

The video sees Kanye prancing around a huge floor space, rapping and avoiding the camera before giving up the fight and settling down in a corner, apparently weary. "I wanted to put the camera on him, and goad him, and exhaust him," Steve said of the filming process. "Before we'd film, he'd beat himself up and run around and do exercises. And then we'd turn the camera on, and then by that time, he's exhausted anyway. It's about the gaze. It's about wanting to be in the gaze, and then the gaze following you with a twist and turn."

Like all Kanye-related matters, one needs a certain amount of pensiveness to decipher the concept of vulnerability that went behind the 9-minute film.

"I'm a bad celebrity, but a pretty good artist," Kanye said. "People in this town only see one color: green. When I saw 12 Years A Slave, I saw a million colours. I was moved, I was touched, I wanted to do better with the art I was doing. I wanted to give more inspiration to the four year olds, maybe someone who can cure f***ing cancer because they were concerned about more than just greed."

And that explains the weariness we see, and probably the rage, too.
