Spewing out from the depths of subversive fantasy (and borrowing from Tony Balko’s title), the ERUPTION program disgorges imaginary visions brought to light with aid of technology. More than just constructed fictions, the artists in this program push the elasticity of the medium, in the process revealing not just inner fantasies but also deeper truths embedded in the material.

This collection of screenings is a curatorial project that was prompted by Chicago’s Green Lantern Gallery’s programming-based exploration into various forms of social ecology. Here, Eric Fleischauer and Jesse McLean have curated a series of three film and video screenings that follow a similar line of inquiry to investigate how artists have used the moving image to investigate both physical and the metaphysical environments and how we see and relate to one another, often with aid of media. The programs presented aim to identify and organize boundaries within the field that are being constantly renegotiated by artists working with moving images.

The final screening in the series will be:
