"Night Vision" is a group show of artists who are influenced by technologies developed by the military, government intelligence agencies, and NASA for use in research, surveillance, and combat. Pieces on view range from an arcade game that charts the advance of U.S. military forces on Taliban strongholds to an FBI-inspired software program that captures data from the gallery's local area network and reinterprets it in visually manipulative ways. Whether by co-opting these technological advancements or by examining public perceptions of them, the artists in this exhibition explore the various murky implications surrounding their uses.

Opening reception: Friday, June 14
Members' preview: 6-7 p.m., general public: 7-9 p.m.
