Trypps #7 (Badlands)
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).
This piece is the newest in an ongoing series of short films Ben Russell describes as a study of "trance, travel, and psychedelic ethnography."
In Trypps #7 (Badlands), a young woman's LSD trip becomes a portal into a psychedelic rendering of the desert landscape that transcends all rational sense of space and perspective. (9 mins., 30 secs., 16mm transferred to HD video)
This month's program is being shown in association with Russell's January 13 visit to screen his first feature film, Let Each One Go Where He May.
Trypps #7 (Badlands) was made with the support of the Wexner Center's Film/Video Studio Program.
