HOLD ME NOW
Robinson's Hold Me Now uses the Thompson Twins' song accompanied by footage from an episode of Little House on the Prairie (along with shots of a seahorse he filmed himself) to create an unexpectedly disturbing work of unease. Out of context and framed by the music, the characters from the television show seem to be in an anguished state of amour fou. The hyper emotion of the scene and Robinson's seemingly random inclusion of the seahorse footage - which hints at Jean Painlevé - gives the video a Surrealist tinge. (Patrick Friel)
