A Shocked Future

by Thea Liberty Nichols
Future Shock by Alvin Toffler was a bestseller in the 1970s when it was published.  It has since been reprinted several times and translated into many different languages. At Green Lantern Gallery, the comical film based on the book is narrated by none other than Orson Wells and screens in an under-a-stairwell cubbyhole in the exhibition.  In the first five or so minutes of the film, “future shock” is summarized several times as “too much change in too short a period of time.” It’s a little hokey sounding, but the film echoes an eerily familiar anxiety—the rapidly accelerating glu...

The Hall of Natural & Despicable Wonders

by Thea Liberty Nichols
The two artists featured in Green Lantern gallery’s soon-to-close exhibition have a similar, illustrative style that makes for a well-made visual marriage. Due to the divergent content of the work on display however, Greg Cook and Kari Percival’s series of works are a discordant juxtaposition. Green Lantern gallery’s attempt to evoke both a history and a natural history museum within the walls of their gallery is daring. Despite the tension of the works on display, the show is not without sweet and simple moments of release as well. The “despicable wonders” of the exhibition title definitely belong t... [more]
