6 degrees of Angus

One of my favorite young artists is Souther Salazar. Heres a pic:




For those of you on the east coast, Souther is having a solo show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC June 23-July 21.

This morning, Robin was scanning Slate magazine when she remarked "man these videos are ripping off Souther Salazar!!" However, a closer inspection revealed that Souther had indeed done the animation. Too Cool.

Then, the angus CPU dimly recalled having seen the alien video before along with a Rick Santorum reference and was able to pull up this Mungowitz Post. At that time, I didn't recogize the essential Souther-ness of the video.

Everything is Illuminated, people.
