My “Because Washington Is Hollywood For Ugly People” video is chosen by Rachel Wolff of New York Magazine as the top art video of 2007. Here’s what she said:
“Kenneth Tin-Kin Hungâ€™s satirical animation was one of the most-talked-about works in Postermastersâ€™ summer group show, â€œNot Your Parents MTV.â€? Given Hungâ€™s psychedelic palette, and the use of familiar faces, politically potent imagery (a Bush-headed Jennifer Aniston, an Obama-headed Borat, Big Macs, Yodas, Saddam on a skateboard, Osama on the cross), low-tech animation, and a biting slam-poetry soundtrack (plus background music courtesy of M.C. Paul Barman), itâ€™s no wonder why.“
Thank You So Much! Also Big Congratulations to my friend Marisa Olson, her 96-00-04-08 is also in the lists too!
