The Box

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).

Repeats every day until Mon Mar 31 2008 .

In his first major video, filmmaker Michael Robinson takes scenes from a Polynesian-vacation episode of the sitcom Full House and, to frightening effect, splits the image (creating Olsen twin mandalas), adds a strobe effect (turning a staple of the TGIF lineup into an op art flicker film), and tweaks the sound (making an Elvis cover by John Stamos sound like a lost track from Big Star’s Third/Sister Lovers). As Robinson says, “tropes of video art and family entertainment face off in a luminous orgy from which neither will survive.” (11 mins., video)

Robinson visits the Wexner Center on April 2 to introduce a program of his films. Click here for more details.

Please note: William E. Jones’s Tearoom screens in the Box on Saturday, March 8.
