Light Is Waiting

Michael Robinson, 2007

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).

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.
