A very welcome addition is the new "Fuse Box," a forum provided by the DAM Contemporaries which is currently exhibiting video works by Bjorn Melhus whose excellent "Captain" is a must see, as strong and hypnotic as the video work by Omer Fast at the MCA Denver (in fact these pieces would make an excellent double bill.) Melhus fuses old Star Trek sound effects with three brooding, stoic actors on a moonscape more like a Shakespearean stage than a science fiction set. The actors are surrounded by images of inter-galaxial travel and high-definition planets, and speak not in their own voices, but lip-sync looped Star Trek dialog with almost no visible emotion. The power arrives as the unmistakable voice of William Shatner oozes passionately from these empty actor-vessels, looped and disjointed, but easily avoiding any camp via the actors' dispassionate, spooky presence and the haunting, timeless Trekian musical themes floating through the films soundtrack. The video immediately brought to mind the classic 1930s era art film "Rose Hobart" by collagist Joseph Cornell, and where Cornell took silent era star Rose Hobart and edited her "East of Borneo" performance into a new context, Melhus takes even less than Cornell from his core material and creates an end product that thoroughly transforms its root into something fresh and exciting.
