mash up award…

May 14, 2009

Penn student Willaim Strasser and his winner of the 2009 Penn Mash up Contest through Penn Libraries.

I had to chance to attend a great conference at Case Western  and this video was highlighted as a contemporary form of art. I think it is a great piece of work and the Auden poem has never sounded better. I would just call it dope, but the ivy league may demand a more elaborate description.

Here is Strassers explanation of the piece:

Whether in Classical mythology, Renaissance painting, 20th century poetry or modern music videos, depictions of suffering have never ceased to captivate audiences. I aim to juxtapose these depictions in order to highlight ways they have changed and ways that they remain the same, identifying something inherent to the human condition.

Heed It Well, Ye Pantheists!

March 25, 2009

In 1982, Les Blank made a documentary about Werner Herzog and the production of his film Fitzcarraldo.  Filmed in the jungles of South America, the filming of Fitzcarraldo has become legendary for not only its audacious vision, but also for the seemingly endless series obstacles it had to overcome.  I believe seven people died shooting this flim, which may have something to do with Herzog’s perception of nature and the jungle:
