The Junk King

Vince Hennemann is a bit of an icon in Austin's more ecclectic circles, dubbed 'The Junk King,' by anyone who has seen his cathedral, a construct of found objects fueled by his passion of installations. Perhaps he's got a bit of a hoarding mentality, but hearing him talk about how his creation has affected people is truly fascinating, and how his environment has affected him in the form of an unfortunate city code violation debacle. The saying of 'One man's junk is another man's treasure' couldn't be a more fitting description for what Vince's vision is all about. An excellently put together mini-doc by Evan Burns.
