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 Sun Aug 27 2006.

The astonishing video works of Italian photographer Olivo Barbieri provide uncanny looks at contemporary urban landscapes.
Using a special lens, shifting planes of focus, and complex soundtracks, Barbieri's aerial portraits reduce epic monuments of civilization to the scale of miniature models or, as the artist calls them, "site specific" installations. The program (approx. 37 mins) includes site specific_ROMA 04 (2004, 12 mins.); site specific_LAS VEGAS 05 (2005, 12:30 mins.); and site specific_SHANGHAI 04 (2005; 12:45 mins.)
