The Dark, Krystle

(Michael Robinson, 2013, 9.5 min)

The cabin is on fire!  Krystle can't stop crying, Alexis won't stop drinking, and the fabric of existence hangs in the balance, again and again and again. -MR

"The Dark, Krystle brilliantly re-purposes the artificiality of stock gesture, allowing viewers to see its hollowness and to feel it recharging with new emotional power. Equal parts archival fashion show and feminist morality play, Robinson’s montage rekindles the unfinished business of identity, consumption, and excess in 1980’s pop culture." -Carrie Secrist Gallery, Chicago
