James Lipton’s Top 10 Questions Answered by Jonna Kina

Have you watched Inside the Actor’s Studio with James Lipton? In this popular TV show, James Lipton interviews legendary guests. He ends his interviews with his list of Top 10 Questions. Over the years, CEG has asked our artists these same 10 questions to gain insight into their personalities and work!

This week we feature Jonna Kina’s answers to these questions. Her video, Secret Words and Related Stories, is included in our current exhibit, Still Moving. Jonna’s video piece is a collection of anonymous passwords and the stories behind them, read by young actors between the ages of 12-16 years old. These are thoughtful, humorous, and emotional stories about a chosen word that often discloses personal information, which is the antithesis of its purpose. We also featured Jonna’s photographs as part of Ctrl+P: Photography Taken Offline. Screen Shot 2016-08-23 at 4.06.37 PM
