Ericka Beckman's photo-installation NANOTECH PLAYERS uses photographs sequenced with computerized lighting (designed by Mark Rosen) and a soundtrack (by Bruce Darby). ESPIRIT DE L'ESCALIER by Barbara Bloom is a multi-chambered combination of fabricated objects, lighting, and text. OJO CALIENTE by John Jesurun is an interactive theater, film/video work that features conversations between actors on separate video monitors. Opening reception on April 9. All three artists also produced artists' books published by Hallwalls.

NOTE: Barbara Bloom's ESPRIT DE L'ESCALIER was later selected to represent the U.S. in the 1988 Venice Biennale, when the Biennale was still held in even-numbered years, and won the prize for Best Artist Under 40. It was subsequently acquired by the San Jose Museum of Art for its permanent collection.
