Kurt Mueller, editor of ARTLIES quarterly put Cliff Evans and I together for a dialogue. There are lots of interesting points Cliff raised. Here the introduction:
Like the Dadaists and Surrealists who cut and collaged printed images, Cliff Evans and Kenneth Tin-Kin Hung configure fragments of the Internet imagescape into kaleidoscopic visions. Both artists apply digital processing power to the photomontage aesthetics of forebears John Heartfield and Hannah Höch, excising images from our collective media unconscious with an Adobe “lasso” tool, then assembling them as cinematic spectacles and animated sociopolitical satires. Meeting for the first time in their mutual home city of New York, Evans and Hung recorded a conversation about process, distribution and the political effects informing their deeply affective theater of images.
