WHAT: "Either / or," an exhibit by Kent R. Anderson Butler, Thomas Emde, Lendon Flanagan, Matt Gainer and Vanda Nagy

WHERE:The Mendenhall Gallery at Whittier College
13406 Philadelphia St., Whittier

COST: free

ADD:These five artists use technology in various ways to produce their art: Anderson Butler uses videos of his performance art to create still photographs; Emde gives the viewer pixels that rise off the surface of the picture plane; Flanagan's work on the space-age material Mylar reduces the image thickness to millimeters, obliterating the viewer's expectation of permanence, weight, mass and two-dimensional space; Gainer uses video to keep an injured bald eagle "under surveillance;" and Nagy constructs moments and memory, asking the viewer to finish a story she has begun using a computer program instead of the old-fashioned collage technique.
