Michael Robinson Videoworks: Volume 1

Michael Robinson's video artworks evade easy categorization — defying genre, the works create their own set of rules. Using found footage, on-screen text, and various video formats, Robinson sparks vibrating frequencies between seemingly disparate parts. Michael Robinson: Videoworks Volume 1 surveys video works made between 2006-2010, exploring an abstracted landscape of media consciousness, bouncing between television, pop music, and personal experiences.
