    Fantastic video, saw her cheerleader work some years ago. There is so much resources on google image et al that I am surprised that there are not thousands of artists doing similar work.

  • lapetitefaon

    wow, awesome, I really also love the Umbrico piece and her artist statement that reflects on how weird it is that we go online to look at the natural world instead of out of our window…oh, peculiar creatures we are!

    Amazing. I love what this girl did.

    There are a tun of people making art from found images off the Internet and I imagine the number of artists doing this will grow as the web gets more saturated. The trend, Penolope Umbrico’s work included, is to just make a grid of found photos. I feel like I see this all the time. What I like about Cassandra’s work is that it does something much more than just call attention to the fact that those images are out there. It pushes the envelope by turning the photo’s she finds into something more. Umbrico’s sunsets just sit there… they are cool but even more static than Flicker itself. I love that Cassandra’s sunset is animated. It seems to take the viewer all over the world and through all these different peoples experience of it. Also, the rabbit blows me away. If it were just a grid of lightning photos, it would not be as interesting.

    i am completely obsessed with her work!

    her work is really great and i found it so interesting but i couldn’t watch the whole video, the interviewer is so irritating.

  • Kjelli

    Wow, I am amazed. Wow, I love this work. It made me feel like I was part of all the caught moments within the day of our sun. Keep of the great work you are truly an artist. I am glad to have seen your work.

Music Video: Rapper Dumbfoundead’s Hilarious Response to Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’

dumbfoundead-safe

Hollywood whitewashing has been in the news a lot lately. One catalyst being the announcement earlier this year that Scarlett Johansson landed a lead role in the remake of Ghost in the Shell, and many wondering why it couldn’t have gone to someone of Asian descent. Korean rapper Dumbfoundead (Jonathan Park) offers up a humorous response, adding himself into a montage of blockbuster films and popular television shows, playing everyone from John Snow to Danny Tanner.

Park told to NBC News that he “wanted to flip the script on the conversation everybody was having about the whitewashing of Hollywood and ‘yellow-wash’ some of the most iconic films starring white male leads.”

This is definitely one of my favourite music videos this year! Watch Dumbfoundead’s “Safe” on Booooooom TV.
