Coming to IFC, a Foodie With a Taste for the Surreal (NYTimes.com)
"In her surreal excursions on Food Party (whose earliest episodes appear online at foodparty.tv), Ms. Tran can be seen enjoying a romantic dinner with a mustachioed French baguette that smokes cigarettes and wears sunglasses; cooking with kitchenware delivered to her by toy helicopters; and breaking into song as she picks doughnuts from a doughnut tree."
"As an undergraduate at the Cleveland Institute of Art, Ms. Tran majored in glasswork. But she specialized in what she called weird psychedelic artificial whatever landscape installations, where hand-blown glass fruits and giant Cheetos grew from the ground, with the scent of car air freshener and the sound of chirping birds wafting throughout."
