mash up award…

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.

Jean-Marie Massaud did a series of work for Glas Italia that may cost more than my whole crib. I imagine these would be way tight to have in your room when you cut up guts like Bale in American Psycho and no not Batman Bale with his bullshit voice and kevlar plated sunglasses or whatever the fuck they had in that joke of a film. Dark Knight is for little kids.
