I'm in Heaven
♪ And my heart is... ♪
Good afternoon, I'm Bill Vendall,
a 25 year old graduate student in
the industrial design program at RISD.
For the past five months
I have assumed the role of a character
I created named Sanjaya Malakar.
The character was part of a larger
art installation for my thesis program.
To the fans of Sanjaya, maybe you're
actually fans of Bill Vendall, the artist.
I am art.
I'm sure many of you subconsciously
knew what I was doing.
How could you look at this this this,
and not see it as a symbol for the
self-referencing nature of progressive evolution?
This won't be the last see of me.
I might show up in other places.
I might pop up on her favorite situation comedy.
I might run for president.
I might show up as you.
