Light Is Waiting
Michael Robinson, 2007
Mar 1, 2008–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.
