All Through the Night is described by Michael Robinson as a “charred visitation with an icy language of control; there is no room for love”. In this 4 minute digital video sequence, Robinson recontextualizes appropriated animation footage. In doing so, he successfully merges video effects into textures and glacial landscapes and creates his own kind of melancholic magic.

Since the year 2000, Michael Robinson has created a body of film, video and photography work exploring the poetics of loss and the dangers of mediated experience. His work has screened in both solo and group shows at a variety of festivals, cinematheques and galleries including the International Film Festival Rotterdam, The New York Film Festival, The Times BFI London Film Festival, Media City, Anthology Film Archives, Viennale, Cinematexas, The Wexner Center for the Arts, ICA London, Impakt, The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Chicago Filmmakers, PDX, and the San Francisco, Oberhausen, and Hong Kong International Film Festivals. Michael currently teaches filmmaking at Binghamton University. Visit him at poisonberries.net
