Video Poetry: Bao Phi + Joua Lee = Lin 467 To The Future

Sunday, July 29, 2012

Original poem written and performed by Bao Phi.
Video by Joua Lee.

ARTIST STATEMENT: This poem and video was originally conceptualized at the height of Linsanity as one in a trilogy -- the first, "Lin. Sanity" by Giles Li and Ash Hsie, was posted last week. "467" alludes to the rank Jeremy Lin had in the NBA prior to Linsanity. When Jeremy Lin went down with an injury, the whole plan was put indefinitely on hold. The recent (and baffling) vitriol that sports media outlets have thrown Jeremy Lin's way escalated the timeline. Thank you to all involved in making this video, and keep an eye out for another video in the trilogy (July 27, 2012)
