As part of the Wexner Center’s 25th anniversary, The Box is dedicating the entire year of programming to work produced in the Film/Video Studio. Screenings in this free exhibition space for video, located just across from the Wexner Center Store, run continuously seven days a week, the same hours as our ticket office (Mon–Wed: 9 AM–6 PM; Thu–Fri: 9 AM–8 PM; Sat: 10 AM–8 PM; Sun: 11 AM–6 PM).
In this evocative rumination on the history and theories of photography, Stephanie Barber uses white-on-white collage to make subtle recreations of well-know photographs by Uta Barth, Candida Hofer, Kohei Yoshiyuki, and Deborah Willis.
A computer-generated voiceover recites a series of statements on photography from an essay by Barber that was nominated for a Pushcart Prize (honoring the best new publications from small presses). (13 mins., video)
