Peter Garfield’s The Reverse Circumference of Zero examines ideas of time, mortality, history, and memory. The artist stands in for John F. Kennedy on the autopsy table in an open exploration of a historical moment whose ripple effect spread throughout the world and into time. The reverberations of the piece deepen with the knowledge that Garfield is the great-great-grandson of the assassinated President James A Garfield. Produced with support from the Wexner Center’s Film/Video Studio, the project makes its world premiere in The Box this month on the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination. (9 mins., HD video)
