Night Vision presents artists who are influenced by technologies developed by the military, government intelligence agencies, and NASA for use in research, surveillance and combat. The title of the exhibition is taken from the high-tech optical apparatus used in nocturnal military operations, whose green glow has become familiar to television viewers. Some of the artists in this exhibition co-opt these technological advancements while others examine public perception of them as revealed by film, television and news media in order to explore the various murky implications surrounding their uses.

Participating artists:
Jordan Crandall | Christoph Draeger | Joy Garnett | Adam Hurwitz | Bill Jones + Ben Neill | John Klima | Joseph Nechvatal | Jonathan Podwil | Radical Software Group

Night Vision first opened at the University Galleries at Illinois State University, and will travel to g-module in Paris in 2003. It is accompanied by a 16 page color exhibition catalogue with essay by Tim Griffin, art editor of Time Out New York. The catalogue is available at White Columns, Dia Bookstore, Printed Matter, The New Museum Bookstore, St. Mark’s Books and Amazon.com.
