This is James Houston and his tumblr blog – he is one gifted mother. He’s better known as the person who made this version of the Radiohead song Nude, which he submitted for his degree show at Glasgow School of Art last summer. Apparently this video got through to the semi-finals of the ADAA awards, but the site is all flash gash so i can’t find out if it went on to win. Somebody once told me that fish and chips, such a quintessentially English thing, is a 19th century east-London combo of a Jewish way of preparing fish and a Hugenot way of preparing potatoes, which may be myth (I think there’s a plaque to the first fish and chip shop in Oldham) but it’s the same point he’s making here. Watching this video reminded me of this video about copyright from the commercial for a concept section of the Oberhausen Film Festival 2007.
