Sunday's Columbus Dispatch featured ‚20 Under 30, a profile of 20 local artists under the age of 30 creating innovative and provocative art. Wexner Center studio editor and video artist Mike Olenick was one of the 20 profiled, with a look at his work. The article paid special attention to For a Blonde . . . For a Brunette . . . For Someone . . . For Her . . . For You, an interactive riff on Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo, which recently screened in The Box video space and at the Deep Focus Film Festival. In the piece Chris Stults, a curatorial assistant in the Wexner Center's media arts department, says of Olenick: ‚He lives for film, and really thinks about what happens to a viewer when he immerses himself in the world of the film, what that does to the imagination."

Also profiled in the story was Cara King, another video artist with ties to the Wexner Center. King, currently studying film at the California Institute of the Arts, created ‚Tomorrow, a video work that was screened a few years ago in the youth division of the annual Ohio Short Film and Video Showcase.
